Default Thermostat Location

1989 Ranger 2.9 L I have read in a manual that the Thermostat is located at the Lower Radiator hose, yet in the Auto Zone guide it states located Upper Radiator.
Appreciate any direction before I remove anything.
Thanks

Thanks to you all, appreciate your time and expertise. Saves me much frustration, esp when a Manual states something totally different.
Its nice to have a 'place' where folks are willing to assist.
