It does matter where you place the damper.

CRANKSHAFT BALANCER AND HUB

Fig. 10 Crankshaft Damper & Hub Replacement

TOOL REQUIRED: J 39046 Crankshaft Hub Remover/Installer

REMOVE OR DISCONNECT

Raise and suitably support vehicle.
Serpentine drive belt.
Balancer bolts/screws and balancer assembly.

NOTE: The crankshaft hub can be installed by a different procedure if the engine should accidentally be cranked over after match-marking the hub and engine front cover assembly.

Set number 1 piston assembly to top dead center.
Install crankshaft hub with cast arrow on hub in the 12 o'clock position.
INSTALL OR CONNECT

Crankshaft hub using J 39046.
Crankshaft hub washer and bolt/screws.

You want to have cyl 1 at TDC. Usually, u can pull that plug, and hold your finger over the plug hole while someone slowly bars the engine over. When its at tdc, it will force your finger off the hole. However thats not as accurate as pulling your front timing cover, and verifying that your at TDC by timing marks. Once you know your at TDC, the arrow on the balancer points straight up. 12 oclock. Hope this helps a bit.
