You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

Ok the mcmaster ones have words on them.

The Exaust is the barrel, The In is the fill/pilot

The Cylinder or Cyl (it says cyl) is the chamber.

Remind the construction of a barrel sealing piston valve, QEVs basically are that and so, the chamber is basically always on the side port.
For the remaining ports, watch the arrows. If there arent any but there is text look for "IN" or something like that, it has to be the pilot, since air goes in (and out) the pilot, but not in the barrel.
