Now the image leans to the left a bit, probably no more than 3-4 degrees below horizontal, to the left.

I'm assuming from looking at the pics of this camera taken apart at the topic beginning, that the lens can be rotated / twisted / screwed back to the right to correct this?

Maybe I should just lean it a bit to the right when mounting. I can just imagine my oh so delicate fingers and touch only making it worse.
If the camera still takes sharp pictures, you should only have to reposition the CMOS module to straighten it with the case and not have to touch the lens. It's screwed into the odule and usually fixed in place with a dab or two of glue. The module is a loose fit in the case and connected to the circuit board via a ribbon cable. The module is usually held in position centered on the hole in the case by either a dab of silicon or hot melt adhesive, or some double-sided foam tape. Should be an easy fix.
