The long bit of the filter faces the front of the car, slightly angled to the right.

Yeah the pump should locate itself in there, it helps prevent fuel starving. Just drop it in with the fittings facing forward.

If its angled correctly it will just sit in it. Be careful of the fuel float tho when inserting it, it won't take much to mess it up and have your gauge read wrong.
