Clockwise vs. counter clockwise rotation

Year: 1983
Make: Chevy
Model: Van 30 (1-ton)
Engine Size: 6.2 Dies
Refrigerant Type: R134a
Country of Origin: United States

I replaced a Sanden SD508 compressor with a Sanden SD7H15.
According to Sanden's specs the SD508 can rotate both ways, clockwise as well as counter clockwise.
The SD7H15 however can only run clockwise.
Which way do I look at it to determine which way it rotates? Thank you.

It's looking at the front of the pulley-- belt is close to you and the main body of the compressor is behind it.
