Default Vacuum tube horizontal

Hi all, I'm not sure but is there any detrimental effect having a vacuum tube operating horizontally at all? If one is tight on space of or the like.

I'm clearly new.
Many thanks

See the datasheet. Most will be OK, some will require a particular orientation.

Many thanks for those links, I should have been more thorough upfront.

Adding insult to ignorance, my own modified JD9 has horizontal tubes in it!

Idiot here.
