Chimney pipe damper flap

I have a small problem with the damper coming out of the side of the pipe that connects my furnace (oil, forced air) to the chimney.

Mounted in the damper is a metal flap (Field Controls 320H) that's supposed to swing on two pins -- one pin per side.

Today I noticed that one pin was gone and the flap was lying inside the mounting. Fashioning a new pin was easy, but the flap is designed to swing either in or out, not both ways. A tab on each side prevents it from swinging freely.

When the furnace runs, should the bottom of the flap swing in or out?

Thanks

Barometric Damper

I searched Field's site & couldn't find that model. Generally if the pins are above center, the bottom would tip in, if below center the bottom would tip out.
