Helios M42 how to correct orientation on adaptor?

I have several M42 lenses, all (more or less) screw onto my adaptor so the lens is oriented correctly, focus and aperture indicator to the top.

There's a Jupiter 11A that I took apart, cleaned and re-lubed, whose rear mount screws can be finally tighten when the lens is mounted - enabling the lens to be oriented correctly on the camera. This facility mainly due to it being an adaptable mount design M42 or T. All fine.

BUT I have a nice condition Helios 44-2 that when mounted to the M42 adaptor doesn't end up with the lens correctly orientated. It's not so bad (not upside down!) but is an annoyance.

Anyone know how to adjust the mount orientation of a Helios?? - as having taken the lens apart nothing is obvious.
