Default Which way should bit face?

Help,
I just got the "Integy X-MOD Super Lathe 3" but the bit seems to be for a right sided lathe? HOW DOES THIS BIT FACE? Should the hook tip face down or to the left?

the cutting tip of the bit should face down and to the side of the comm nearer the winds

im not familiar with how your lathe looks like but hope this gives you an idea

Thanks, I have it set up correctly (pointing down). This the carbide bit but it's must be a new style, it has a very small almost neddle size tip. But it does make a nice satin smooth cut.

It's the right way, just check that it's at the centre of the com.
