Metal heat cont.valve-all look like this?

I didn't want to be left out of the heater valve replacement movement. But
not having a Pep Boys in my area, I obtained an all metal valve specified for
an 87 5ksctq (Everco #H2970) from a local shop. It is configured differently
than the original one and I am unsure if there is a correct direction for the
coolant to flow through it.
3/4" diameter metal tube, 2" long, with brass plug on one end and a 2"
diaghragn like housing on the other
3/4" hose receiver about 1/2" from plug, another about 1" higher, facing opp.
The diaphragm housing has a nipple for the vacuum line.

1) Is this similar to the Pep Boys version?
2) Since there is no indication for flow, does it matter which direction it's
3) Which way does the coolant flow through this line?Towards the engine, or

Thank you,
