    look at the housing where the caps sit and you will see the marking of where they sat, you just have to look at them carefully and see where each mark is compared to the cap, if all else fails you will have to get a dial indicator and make sure every thing is good.
    What were you doing that you had to take the caps off?? lockers? gears??

    Heres how you check left from right. Put the cap on and FEEL the inside where it mates the housing, and see if its smooth or not. Youll be able to tell, if it isnt smooth then try the other cap, if it is smooth, then thats where it goes. Does that make sense?


    Here how they should look.
