Thermostat posistion on 2002 dodge ram question

Hi guys I have a 2002 ram 1500 4.7 motor in which I changed the thermostat in but when I removed the old one I forgot to check which way it was put in. The therm on this truck is on the bottom of the engine connected to the bottom hose of the radiator. I need to know if the therm spring goes toward the engine block or toward the hose. How would I know if I put it in wrong and what would happen to the engine if I did. Thanks

Whichever hose the T/stat is in...........The "pellet" or thick body of the stat, always goes towards the engine.........the source of heat
