Your new motor is reversible?

If so, I'd try it both ways for a fixed time and see if there's any difference in pressure.

If yes, go with that direction.
If no, probably doesn't matter.

Typically, though, the flywheel will blow air toward the pump, so that's a clue, too.

You might put up some pix so we can see what it looks like.
