Honeywell zone valve orientation

Mfiederer Member Posts: 1
I’m adding a zone to my heating system. I ordered a Honeywell V8043E1012 for the job. My current zones are installed on the return side, to do that as well I’d have the zone valve “upside down” meaning the arrow would be going the right way but the body itself would be upside down with the wires coming out the top. All of my other zones have the wires coming out the bottom. Does this matter?  Is there a way to flip just the “face” and leave the body as is?

    The powerhead is not reversible and the flow has to follow the arrow. Taco "zone sentry" valves are reversible but slower opening.
  • Like @mattmia2 said, the power head is not reversible, so the wires would be coming out of the top. Is that a problem for you?
