Stewart, you should read these mails more carefully. The thermostat doesn't have a "Bleed Nipple", it has a "Bleed Hole" and it does make a difference. I'd be surprised if there is a 3 month wait for a genuine one, I bought one from Westcars in Perth last winter and they had one off the shelf, cost about £7 or so.
The thermostat from Europarts may indeed have the bleed hole but often pattern ones come without the rubber gasket which it fits in and the old one is invariably too hard and brittle to reuse. Given that these things are very cheap I prefer to use the real thing for the reasons above.

I understand your predicament Stewart. Hopefully the pattern thermostat will have a bleed hole and a new gasket.
