Mates on a Cylinder (LH or RH Assy)

I have an 8' Diameter Cylinder 100" long. I am mating components to the exterior of the cylinder, when looking from the aft end of cylinder, 45° clockwise & tangent to the cylinder. Now I have a Left-Hand configuration of this assembly and mate the component 45° counter-clockwise & tangent to the cylinder.


Switch back to the Right-Hand configuration & the component is now in the 135° counter-clockwise location, 180° out of position.


I have tried placing planes and creating a sketch on the aft surface for the angled locations & mated the component plane to the sketch without success.


How do I fix this issue without "fixing" the position?
