Shroud Questions

65 Monza coupe--
Where do I put these shroud pieces? I forgot where they go and how their orientation should be? Also, I have looked at the thermostat coils for the lower shrouds. One is all coiled up while the other is fully expanded?ImageImage

Top two go over the rear engine support bracket after the engine is all-installed. Skinny one goes in first and should have j-clips on the center two holes.

Bottom left goes behind the distributor, rotated 90 degrees from as shown- (fairly early in the process)
Bottom right goes behind the oil cooler, rotated 90 degrees from as shown (fairly early in the process, certainly before oil cooler)

The expanded thermostat has failed and should be replaced. Clark's C50RM or a good used or NOS is better if you can find one.
