Power Steering Pump Plunger Orientation

On a 3.9L RRC power steering pump, I had to unthread the larger outlet fitting to get the high pressure line off and the little spring loaded plunger shot out. Anyone know which way it goes back in? It fits either way

For posterity, it goes this way. I checked an old pump I had on hand....

I'm assuming the pump isn't in the most inconvenient location on a RRC as it is on the D90?

Only tiny leprechauns can get in there to fix it.

Before you let them loose on you truck, make sure you properly lubricate them with Guinness.
