expansion valve inlet/outlet

Refrigerant Type: R134

Hello Everyone,

I am installing one of AMA complete a/c kits and am at the point of installing the expansion valve. I only have one problem there is no arrow or marker indicating which port is the inlet (liquid side) or the outlet (evaporator side) I have looked online and read lots of threads about expansion valves and cant seem to find the info I need.

Please any help would be greatly appreciated maybe I am just making this harder then it has to be.

Is this correct?

What kit are you working with? If you have an expansion valve it will only fit one way.
