Default Thermostat position

I think I installed the thermostat the wrong way. Getting hot real fast!

Which direction does the spring face? Spring facing engine or spring outward toward radiator

Yep...the end with all the guts.....the spring and the heat sensor go INSIDE the engine. The end that doesnt really have anything on it faces outward toward the radiator.
