I'm definitely guilty of not knowing what I am doing, but I can't see how the top orientation makes any difference. The top just has the bore the plunger rides in. What is important is the orientation of the slide piston and diaphram, but, that is independent of the top.  There is a bleed channel, but the hole is just open to the top of the diaphram and it makes no difference if it is at 12 3 6 or 9 o'clock.
