203 Thermostat

Is it posible to install a thermostat without having to flush the system? Reason I ask is I am wanting to flush system before my trip to Texas for labor day, but won't be able to get the thermostat in time. Can I flush the system and then replace the thermostat when I get back without losing all the coolant?

Sure, you might loose a gallon if you dont drain it down... Just drain a gallon or so out and change it, then refill.
