hi i'm bill welcome to just answer please remember I am NOT there in front of you! my answers are based on your information

bill :

the thermostat is in the LOWER radiator hose

bill :

it is mounted in a plastic housing attached to the front of the engine where the lower radiator hose attaches to the engine.

bill :

there are 2, 8mm bolts attaching it to the timing cover and NO gasket there is an "O" ring attached to the thermostat for sealing

bill :

also remember this engine uses a special orange/pink coolant and it is NOT compatable with the standard green coolant you find in many parts stores using regular coolant WILL damage the cooling system
