Default Thermostat question

Hello all,

I still have my legend and my 10 year anniversary of legend ownership is next month! I have been driving it very little the last few years and now am beginning to fix up things on it.

I had a few coolant leaks so I pulled the thermostat as part of the cooling system refresh. I bought a new one and it would not fit (Aisin THH-007)! The 2 main members of the thermostat frame for the new thermostat is at a 45 degree angle to the one I pulled out...and this is the exact same design of 19301-PAA-306, which is supposedly the OEM thermostat.

I know 19300-PL2-004 was the original thermostat, and I believe that was what was in the car. Has anyone else had problems with thermostat fit in these cars?

I looked at cheap aftermarket ones and they were the same design as the old one I had in there, and are not cocked 45 degrees like the new designs...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
