Not every Needle Valve will thread in a exact same position to any ASA On/Off Valve. Alot of factors depends on how tight you tighten it along with how many rounds of Teflon tape you add around the thread. Going by angle degree will not help you. Tighten it down with a crescent wrench to where it doesn't leak and it'll be enough at that position. Therefore it will not be in a certain exact position as any other setup that one might have.

Needle valve is simple, fully clockwise is closed. Slight counter clockwise is open.
