    Ooh. Good question :) That is actually a non-trivial question and I will have to disassemble one (at least pull the bottom cover off) to figure it out so it will not happen until my next trip to the shop.

    In the end it should not matter since both are getting the same signal just through their own stepper driver cards (on a standard RAMPS both would be on the same stepper driver card).

    Ok cool thanks. Also I am curious about which fan goes where too. So if you could look at that too I would appreciate it.

    That will tell you where the fans go, but not which of the Z is left/right -- that I will need to go tear into a machine to find out.
