Since the O-rings are down near the cylinder heads but I was seeing drips from the thermostat housing, I'm guessing it was the thermostat that was leaking.

Got the T-stat swapped yesterday. The old thermostat looked fine. Its rubber gasket was still pliable, and looked just as good as the new one. Dunno how it was leaking.

Went for a half-hour or so test ride yesterday, and to work today, with no coolant drips so far. But that doesn't mean much - it was an intermittent leak anyway.
