For clarification purposes; my clutch slave cylinder was replaced about 2 years ago and works fine. I am in the process of a few projects including cleaning up some surface rust on the cross member. I have removed the line from master to the rubber hose so I can clean and treat that area without the line in the way.
I am not sure if the shop replaced the rubber hose so I figured I would do that as well. Before disconnecting the hose I noticed that the bleed nipple was at the 6 o'clock position (pointing straight down). I know from reading all the threads that the nipple should be straight up at 12 o'clock. Is it possible that the sc could rotate after being installed? Thanks.

The whole slave rotates in use, yes. When bleeding, orient it so the screw is up, but once bled, it doesn't matter. To some extent it find its own orientation based on the hose angle.
