Question hot side of the radiator

Which side of the radiator is hotter, the water pump side, or the thermostat side?

uhhh which way does the water flow? (ya I know I should know this, but its late and the car is in the garge so I cant start it) If the coolant is drawn IN through the water pump than that side is cooler. If the water pump drives the coolant out into the radiator than the thermostat side is cooler.

Hmmm is your wagon Moon Silver code 787 like mine?

The 787 sounds familiar, but the car is at my folks house torn into a million pieces. I am putting on 2 electric fans with adjustable thermostats, and a radio. I just need to know what side is hotter so I can mount the thermostat bulbs there. It's amazing how much I miss my GL when it's all torn apart!

The stock mounting points for the thermoswitches is the passenger side of the radiator, if that helps at all.

The thermostat lets hot water OUT of the engine. So the Passenger side is “hot” on the EA cars.

I just read the directions for the thermostats tonight.. They sit right in the inlet of the radiator, so I will install them on the thermostat (passenger) side. And yes, the car is paint code 787, although only about 70% of the car is really 787 paint. The rest is just...pretty sad..
