Default GZ37 rectifier horizontal mounting?

Hi
Does anyone know if a GZ37 can be mounted horizontally? I want to use one inside a chassis, but if I have to mount it vertically it will make the chassis quite tall. I can't find a decent data sheet for the GZ37 which has this information.
Thanks
Max

don't know if it helps but I've used a 5Y3 and a GZ34 horizontal with no problems, I can't see why a 37 wouldn't work like that

Thanks all.
Does anyone know if it has to be oriented a certain way? Filament vertically or whatever?
Cheers
Max

Deff fill vertical, it's rather a long one on these so you don't want it sagging and touching the plate.
