    Cyl. head gasket upside-down?

    have a msx150 i've been helping a friend with and when i got deep enough to inspect waterpump/shaft i noticed the tab on the head gasket oriented opposite dowel. Looks like dowel holes are on intake and exh. sides of the gasket looking at pic in service manual? Hoping anyone may know if the gasket can go on upside down? meaning large cooling holes on intake side rather than exhaust. Any insight is greatly appreceited?

    this is from my msx service manual. the larger slots must go to exhaust (hotest side of block)
