Default Fuel Pump line routing?

I have a J600R and the fuel pump I have does not look like the one in the manual. It has an aero pointing to one of the lines. Is this the fuel line that goes to the turbine? (and this is where my manual shut off valve will also go) Or does the aero line go to the header tank? I would think that the line with the aero pointing to it would go to the turbine.
Thanks,
Mario

The arrow designates the direction of fuel flow, so it points to the nipple that you connect the turbine's fuel line to.

The position of the manual shut off valve is a personal preference thing really. Either side of the pump will work and have the desired effect, but I prefer to place it on the pressure side (between he pump and engine) due to the fact that the o-ring seals in all Festo style connectors are designed to work under pressure. They will usually work on a net vacuum circuit, but you're always running some risk of drawing air.
