"....does the fitting point up or down, I thought they were suppose to point down"
I believe you're refering to the fuel in/out hose bibs......they should be on the bottom.
There will be pressure on the actuating arm against the cam lobe while installing. (spring load)

(The 66-69 vac operated wipers ran off two tubes pointing up, on top of the fuel pump)
