Does it matter how this pump is mounted? I'm not sure what the allen plug is for. Should it be mounted up or down?
Mounted horizontaly,like pictured,plug down or.....
Up?

Doesn't matter. That's a case drain for the oil that squeezes past the interior clearances during prolonged use under pressure, as with a hydraulic motor. It can be up, down, or on either side.

Working with cylinders on a GT, that is a non-issue. The pressure is only there for a few seconds and reverts back to idle pressure when the handle is released allowing the case to self drain back through those same clearances.
