I just purchased an 88 gl1500 and after riding for a couple days noticed a coolant smell.Tracked it down to leaking at the thermostat housing.Bought new thermostat and seals,when i took the cover off i forgot to check for which way it came off,there is a deflector inside the plastic housing does anybody know which way it is suppose to be facing/
