My 2000GT

Hello all,
I have a 2000GT which I drive every day, I recently replaced the thermostat and after a couple days I noticed a puddle in the garage. I'm hoping to get some advice on the best way to repair a leaking theromstat housing unit; I believe I cracked it by over tighting . Short of replacing the entire unit; is there a better way? Thank you in advance and any advice is much appreciated.

I would just replace it
I really don't know how you could fix it

Re: My 2000GT

i coated the housing with a layer of jb weld and let it set up over night, when i cracked the t-stat housing in my gf's lexus.... but i would advise just buying a new one.
