Default Exaust Manifold

I have two questions about the Exhaust Manifold.

1. The gasket that I have is one that has a steel face on one side. Does that face in toward the engine or out towards the manifold?

2. The nuts are brass to hold the manifold on the engine. What is the torque on brass nuts? I believe they are 3/8" NF. It must be less than the steel nuts of the same size.

The steel faces out and I torque the nuts down to about 35 lbs. I use a 3/8 ratchet till nice snug and then tighten if necessary.
