Looks like mine is rotated too far to the left. Havnt had any
issues with it this way. I will leave it until its time to replace
the pump with a new one.
If Agillot is correct, Luna's water pump is in the correct position as the cut out is at 10am. I pulled out my Graf replacement pump and there are holes 180 degrees opposite of each other. One hole has no bump out. As shoen in Luna's photo, the bump out hole is facing downward.

Who is right?

FYI, Graf says to not put any gasket dressing on the paper gasket. I will assume the printed side of the gasket goes to the engine block surface.
