Restring Kawasaki trimmer issues

Kt27fra3 trimmer

I am trying to understand how to restring this trimmer head.
It's got an arrow on it pointing left and right. One says left and the other right. How do you know if the bump side or the inside goes left or right?

Generally if you look from above at the head when the engine is running, the line is wound the opposite direction from the inside out looking at the spool from the same view.

It looks like that's a universal or replacement spool and you'll have to do what Cheese recommended and look at the rotation direction of your trimmer. Once you know, wound the line, and tested it to make sure you got it right I would use a chisel to scrape off the incorrect lettering so you won't have this problem again in the future.
