Default thermostat and gasket order

what is the order that the gasket and the thermostat goes on. It is engine, thermostat, gasket, manifold or engine, gasket, thermostat, manifold. also, which side of the thermostat goes into the engine side?

thanks

While we're on the subject of T-stat replacement, self-stick gaskets (I get mine at O'Reilly's) make replacing the T-stat a whole bunch easier... position the T-stat in the waterneck, then place the gasket over the T-stat and stick it to the waterneck - now the gasket will hold the T-stat in place as you lower the waterneck into position on the manifold, and the gasket also stays stuck in place so you don't have to hunt and search for the gasket's bolt holes.
