Correct starter gear orientation?

Should be an easy question. Please verify that I have the starter gear oriented correctly. The Panhead Manual figure on p. 156 is not very enlightening.

In the photo here, the kicker arm is straight up, and the fat pin on the starter gear is at about the 7 o'clock position. I'm pretty sure this is correct, as stop in the transmission case would keep the starter crank from going past vertical.

Yep! Right where it hits the stop in the case. Bob
