Thermostat "Jiggle Vavle" clocking

I should have noted the "Jiggle Valve" position on my 2015 3.5 l N/A Taurus ,V6when I took the T Stat out for a coolant flush & replacement, but as usual ,was in a hurry, & didn't think of noting the way that valve was positioned from the factory! This is a first time flush at 4 years & 24K mi. From what I've researched, they usually go at 12 O' Clock high, but does anyone have a manual , & does the Ford 3.5L N/A V6 , go at a different clock angle? Thanx...

Juggle valve should be at the top.
