It's not a motor - it's a pump. I doubt it makes any operational difference but I would expect the hoses to connect from the bottom. I would not be at all sure it is bi-directional - most pumps are not.
Thanks TOH, maybe I'm not using the correct term for it.
This is the controlling valve in the power steering unit.
It mounts in the steering column, one hose coming from the pump,
one hose returning to the tank and two going to the cylinder that helps move the steering drag link.
The only diagram I've seen for this thing labeled it a motor, even though it
obviously does not work as one.
