Thanks bro. Well I got it. This is what I did. I looked in my Haynes magazine that I bout and it said use a silicone to keep the seal on the block, after that I decided to use the silicone to put the thermostat on that metal cover that connects the hose and it makes it a whole lot easier. it was a job made so simple. Damn.

It will act as a seal too. I'm glad I thought of it.

Fill the system and burb it.

You just bought a Haynes manual right? It'll tell you how to do it. Make sure you fill the rad and overflow tank, then take out the bleeder bolt just in front of the intake and squeeze the rad hose until you don't get any more air bubbles and then replace the bleeder bolt. You don't want any air pockets in the cooling system. The manual will be better detailed, just giving you an idea of what to do, its pretty early and I'm quite tired.
