1997 Mustang GT Thermostat Installation and Position

Hello all,

I been having some strange issues with my mustang in AZ weather. It is a 97 Mustang GT i have alot of mods on this car, but I think my Fan assumably is failing, my temp sending unit, or the thermostat.

I bought a new thermostat, and need help installing it.

I actually know where its located, how to remove it and how to install it.

I just need help positioning it.

I included a picture and just want to know where is this pointed? Engine or Radiator.

It is a MotoRad fail safe unit, and the mustang has a new Maniforld from Dorman.

Thanks.

I am hoping that this will take care of it, however what i am thinking is that since the heat only happens when use AC or Traffic Driving, i think that my fan does not kick into second gear. It runs as has as 80-85% on the gauge. NORAML it sits between A/M, at that point car runs very sluggish.
