I have had a look through a heap of pics and the majority have the clips at 1 o'clock and 7 o'clock and the wires exit the top of the dissy under the top clip.

Doesn't really matter as long as the coil wire reaches, the clips can pop off and the HT leads are the correct way around.

The Vac Advance 29D4 dizzys have the vac unit facing up or at 1 o'clock and the coil lead exiting the top under the top clip.

My question is does the markings be up or down? Thanks

I usually make sure the low tension black wire faces the coil so i’d set it about 180 degrees from where you have it now

They should only go in one way. Opposite side to the condensor.

What I mean is it is mounted in the dist already but looking at it from the from the dist is it in the 12 o clock position or 6 oclock (bottom)

It doesn't matter how you mount it as long as it works. But I wouldn't have the coil wire exiting the opposite side to the coil.

Typically the points are on the top (roughly 12 o’clock position)

Yep. It does help with access to adjusting them if they are at the top.
