If you are referring to the bolt that secures the line to the pump, then the bolt needs to be tightened so that there are no fluid leaks. The actual positioning of this bolt would be irrelevant as long as it is tight and not leaking.

I'm concern that there is a fluid back up on this line because there is an arch in the power steering line. So your thought is even though there a hole in the bolt it does not need to be postioned to accept fluid flow from line

That is correct.
