Mounting an OS FS70 S on my low wing.

Hey all I have a OS FS70 S that I am going to put on my V-MAR Cap. My question is this is the fist engine I will mount on my own and want to make sure I do it right. Also this is my first 4 stroke and I want to make sure that I position it in the easiest running position. Ok first question

1.Although the manual says there should be a thrust line on the firewall there is not how do I decide where this is?

2.I think I would like to mount this engine at inverted or 9 o-clock so that the exhaust gets away from the plan but if I did this would I run into a balance issue right to left? If so how would I correct this?

Well I think that is it thanks for your help guys.
New and have lots to learn

You wouldn't like the hastles inverted. On its side is fine. Biggest concern is putting the carb barrel 1/2 in above the centre of the tank so you don't have fuel draw problems.
