My lines are different sizes. From the rubber in the back to the valve is smaller ends than the line from the valve to the front. Is the valve two different sizes or the same size? This should tell you which way it goes.

The lines are the same size. The fitting on one end has a larger thread. But if I go by matching larger fitting to the same end, it'll be in the opposite way 4 guys at 2 different parts stores told me.

I bought the valves from a dealership because I couldn't find them anywhere else.

Well, since I couldn't see into them, I hacked the ends off and drilled deep enough to find which end had a "teet". A pin eventually popped out of the outlet end. Which would point to the opposite of what the parts store people said. The ends of the pin are flattened and look like the visible "teet".

Would it help if I looked at my cars for orientation?

It'* late where he is now. I assume he'* done for the night and didn't finish.

John, call me tomorrow morning. I'm usually up by no later than 7am on the weekends. I can check mine if you need me to.

I've been in the garage. I went with "teet" towards the back. It externally matches what was already there. The end with the big thread went forwards. I've got one of the two lines "done". I need to do the other and then bleed the system.

In case I need to, can someone describe the "bench bleed" process?
