Default Hose clamp orientation

Some time ago someone went into detail here as to the correct orientation of the radiator hose clamps. I know (think) that I printed it out for later use (it's now later) but can not find it. I've searched the forum but no luck. If that could be posted again I would appreciate it.

The JS&RG book says, 'Both radiator inlet upper hose clamps had the screw on the top side of the hose with the head towards the drivers side. On the radiator outlet hose nearest the radiator, the clamps had the screw on the drivers side with the head facing upwards. On the outlet hose at the cylinder water inlet casting, the clamps had the screw on the top of the hose with the head facing the drivers side.

Is there a correct way to line up the red stripe along with the clamps?

If you don't have time to do it right the 1st time, how do you have time to do it the 2nd time?
