they go on top, the bend you see in the clip holds tension on the hose to keep it secure within the clip.  The hose goes up through the the hole the nut on the hose is located into the bottom to stop it rotating, the clip goes exactly how you have it in the pic

That's what I thought, but it doesn't seem to work. I threw away the OEM Datsum hoses years ago and I'm inclined to think the Wilwood (Arizona Z kit) hose have the groove at a different spacing...

On the opposite side of the clip (to your most recent shot above) - make sure that the fitting has slipped into the star shaped grooves properly, so that there is ample room where you are struggling to fit the clip. Hopefully that makes sense! (can take a photo later if it doesn't)

It does, and I was careful to ensure it was located correctly. Thanks.

 

Success... I just needed to eat more spinach. The car's underside was painted with 2 pak and later with anti-stonechip. Although I was careful to mask-off areas from the anti-stonechip where items were attached to the underside, e.g. suspension, brake lines, etc., the 2 pak must be much thicker than the OEM paint.
