Good deal, getting the crud out did it!

Waiting for heat without a thermostat is normal, with one in the coolant ONLY goes through the heater core 'till the engine is warm enough to need cooling from the radiator - so without one it's cooling too much & can take a while to warm up.

Amc's personal experience details on thermostat housing issues help a lot - that's what's great about having a lot of knowledgeable people on the site, SOMEONE has dealt with the issues on each type and found what works!
