Tips for replacing a tstat and housing.

Does anyone have any special tips/hints/tricks for R&R of the tstat and housing?
I just ordered the whole thing, gasket included. Not sure on the difficulty of this and other things. Like what to do after I replace it besides bleed the system.

Is there actually a way to install this backwards? Last guy that owned it said he installed it backwards.

Also, my plans are to replace this, take it downtown and get the cooling system flushed. Would it be safe to do this without bleeding the lines? its only about a 10 min drive.
