On the '66-'67 273 Charger/Commando motors with CAP, did the factory have the breather nipple on the air cleaner point to the front, or rear? Photos I've come up with generally have them forward at approximately the 4 or 5 0'clock position, although I've come across a few that seem to have it to the rear at about 1 o'clock. I know that functionally it doesn't matter, but I want it oriented correctly before I attach the new sticker. (Mine had nothing left of the old callout when I got it).
Thanks ahead of time!

Wasting time here
Ours is at 1 oclock, not sure if "correct" or not, but the way the hose is curved to oil breather makes me think orig. Hose gets in way of a couple plug wires tho.

I can not say for sure but I believe this 67 air cleaner is OEM.

The placement would suggest the tube faces rear with sticker facing forward.
