    I cannot tell from the photo, Shin!

    If it is flat on top, it is most likely an intake; If domed, then it is most likely an exhaust.

    Beware extractors expand things, Craig!

    For a left-hand bit to pull that large of stud sounds like abuse of tooling, (if not your tooling budget), unless you are real, real lucky.
