I don't know why they say the Arrows have to face the Trans Flange.
From a pure Physics standpoint, this is just a chunk of rubber with steel reinforcement, pretty much like a tire anatomy, and 6 symmetrical holes.
My guess is the direction of the arrow is not crucial.

I just realized the the O.P. Ebonix is from Australia the Down-Under, so they tend to do things opposite of Northern Hermisphere people. They drive on the left side of the road and they install the Giubo backward haha... sorry Ebonix I am just joking around, "a laugh a day keeps the doctor away" kind of thingy....
