I do believe they have to be operated in the designated positions to keep the ferrite cores centered in the stack laminations. They will probably work in any position, just not as well, I should think - and they may also be more susceptible to 'spring droop' causing the ferrite to make contact with the laminations over time, too. I'm not sure about the vertical-mount tanks - perhaps they have more spring tension to make up for vertical spring sag?
I've been gone for the past week - got back on Saturday, just in time for the 'great Ampage crash'.
