    I had this same question last week. I pulled my 3 heads, and one head gasket, like yours, didn't have the word "up" or the nub to line up with the cooling rail. When I looked at the other two, that did have the word "up" and the nub, they had the same large hole lined up just the way yours is now.

    Is it running hot on the water or just the hose?

    ive taken off the heads and looked at the other head gaskets and that is the way its positioned. as in the pics. others heads, 2 and 3 run cool to the touch and mag runs ouch! hot! or is it all in my imagination?. head gasket blew last season and replaced it with the one shown. but now it seems to run ouch! hot!

    That is normal with the thermostat and pop off valve installed in the cooling system. When running on the flush kit crimp/block-off the water out hose from the Rail.
