I've been using a 180 degree thermostat in my EB for the past year and it
seems to be a good mix for both winter and summer. The 180 is recommended in
my 74 manual as the "medium" t-stat. You could switch to a 190 or 195 in the
winter if you want your motor to run a bit warmer. Don't bother with a 160
for the summer though, as it will remain open most of the time, and doesn't
allow the coolant enough time to cool within the radiator.

Just my $0.02
