Right now, the chronologies for Namor and the Torch list Human Torch #3 and #5a taking place before Marvel Mystery Comics #17. Unless I'm missing something, it should be the other way around.
Their only previous Golden Age meeting was their first battle. In Marvel #17, they're antagonists who grudgingly team up, and Toro isn't around yet. Then in HT 3 and 5a, they already have an alliance, and the Torch is working with Toro. On top of all that, this fits better with the publication order.
Unless it's been clarified in modern-day continuity, this makes more sense!
