Post front disc brake wheel cylinder??--bleeders

I bought a 33 ford frame with i think a mustang II frontend. It was just kind of put together quickly. This is probably dumb, but my question is "Doesn't the bleeder on the brake wheel cylinders have to be on top?" My brakes are 45 degrees towards the back top of the front wheels and the bleeders are on the bottom of the cylinders. If I rote them 90 degrees forward so they are 45 degrees towards the front top of the front wheel the bleeder would be on top and I think the flexible brake hose would work out better. Does this make sense?

i believe they're on the top so you can bleed the air out of the lines. If the nipple was at the bottom, you could have some air trapped in the top.

I believe the calipers are on the wrong sides. If you switch sides with them , Your bleeders will be on top like they are supposed to be. It sounds like your calipers are mounted in the right position, they are just on the wrong sides.
