I've changed the thermostat w/o removing the pump....it's pretty tight tho,
and taking off the pump is simple (undo tension lock bolt, undo pivot bolt &
belt, remove 2 (?) bolts and set pump aside) and makes the job a LOT easier.

I don't get that much variation summer/winter; winter temp just takes a
little longer.  I don't know where the thermostat opens on the gauge; my rad
fan goes into high just above the second hash mark, however, and usually
runs just below the same mark.
