Default OPT axis

Is it preferable to mount the OPT with the bell facing the output tube ?

Only from the point of view of keeping the primary connections SHORT. Otherwise its more important to orientate it such that its EI laminations are at 90 degrees to the power tranny laminations.
The second is probably more important than the first.
