Need Help ASAP Please, freaking out !

Well I put my hub back on after cleaning sump screen and I had the top of the hub marked as it came off w/a magic marker but for some stupid reason I just grabbed it and bolted it back on, my question is does this matter? I will post pics of it, let me try.
I'll be back I guess they didnt transfer to laptop, will try again. Sorry.
Wow, I never noticed how much diff the color looks. Anyhow the one on left w/the clean bolts is the hub I put back on (right side of tractor hub) but it has the flat surface facing up and the one on the right that is on the left side of tractor the flat surface is not facing up. What Im asking is do I have to take the hub back off and put in back on the exact way it came off wich I did mark w/marker or does it not matter?
P.S. If you look at shiney bolt on left you can see the line I made by it w/the marker and that part of hub was straight up and not to the left so is this important? Im trying to find a way to explain it.

I really do think it will matter though I'll defer to one of the Gravely Whispers for a concrete answer.

Thanks cmeyers77, I took the advice and went ahead and flipped it, Heck I marked it just for that reason. I was just going to fast or was nervous because I went to grab the hitch-brace and realized "OMG that thing is a mess!" so I left it off and scrubbed it and it is sitting now with stripper on it and I hope to have it primed tonight at least. I dont recon one bolt on each side remounting it will be to much of a big deal. Just doing that sump screen cleaning was/is the biggest thing i have ever done to it at this point...and I think its big enough to! lol!
Oh yea here is a pic of one of the two oil coated kernals of corn that was inside of that thing. It prolly came from centerville or circleville Oh. where those huge corn fields are just outside of Columbus.

The position of the axle housing is not critical unless you are using or installing Gear Reduction Wheels (GRW). Then the axle stub indent must be in the same position on both axle housings. (When using GRWs, you can rotate the axle housings to adjust the ground clearance.)

I was wondering about that, I wasn't 100%

I went ahead and put it beck the way it came off just incase before Gravely _n_fla posted.
Better safe than sorry, and it usually goes in the sorry column for me lol.
Now that wer'e on the subject is it OK to leave it dry of oil for awhile as long as I dont turn anything or should I go ahead and put new oil in it?
I dont think or HOPE I have to get back inside of it but would hate to drain and save the new oil if I did.

It's OK not to add oil later, but personally I'd add oil now. When you go to start it later you may get all excited and forget to check the oil. Of course then it will start right up and after a minute of running it will dawn on you why the oil pressure gauge isn't indicating any pressure.
