96, 12valve. So, I got a brand new head and everything to go along with it (havent seen a bill that big in a while... didnt cheap out on anything) Just got it back from the machine shop the other day, and buttoning everything up tonight, I put my thermostat + housing back on, yes its a new thermostat and gasket, but am I just having a blonde moment, from the head it goes!
Am I missing something? another gasket/seal, or anything? I can't get it to seal worth a shit, and I dont really want to silicone it or anything like that.

I CANT remember when i pulled it apart if there was another seal or anything. I mean it was a thermostat whatever didnt think or care about it! But apparently that was a dumb thing to do. (And yes I feel dumb even asking this)
