You need to put the washer back in.. It will leak if you don't.. The fitting (called a Banjo fitting) will rotate. You just need to loosen the housing around the High Speed needle, and then rotate the banjo in the direction you want it, then retighten.. See the flat spots on the brass piece? That is what you loosen, then you can rotate the fuel nipple anywhere you want it.

The "washer" is a gasket. You need to reinstall that. The banjo fitting (the piece with the nipple that the fuel line attaches to) will swivel, all you have to do is loosen the main housing (the one you removed) and turn it where you want it. Hold the nipple in place while gently snugging it back down as it is brass and will break if over tightened.

and DO NOT over stress the soft nickel gasket it will flatten out and start leaking.

I'm pretty sure the Limited are standard v-specs. The only differences are the head and the number etched into the side of the mounting boss.
