The way you worded the question is a little confusing. If you mean keeping the same locations on the water pump and changing the orientation on the radiator, don't do it! I wouldn't mess with the cooling system design, I'm assuming its made that way for a reason. If you mean swapping hoses all together but keeping the same configuration, then sure it will work, but why would you need to?
