Normally the L1, L2, and L3 are your lines, and T1, T2, and T3 are the loads. A word of caution though;

Always verify with the supplied wiring schematic before connecting any voltage to the equipment, failure to follow the manufacturer's instructions may cause damage or personal injury.

Electrician: David Bowden, Electrician replied 7 months ago

I​ am not able to access the wiring schematic for this device and therefore will open it up to other experts who may be able to assist you better. I do not want to tell you something incorrect.

H​i this is Dave again, I believe I have the answer to your question with supporting proof. Based on the information (see attached link) the 120v coil wiring is directly under the T1, T2, and T3 terminals (red wires), therefore the other end of the red wires (L3 and the far right lower screw) should be your incoming 120v line wires. 120v coil hot wire is supplied from the L3 incoming voltage which leaves the far right terminal for the neutral connection (top screw). You should be able to verify that this screw has no voltage from any of the line/load terminals L1, L2, L3, T1, T2, and T3 when energized. If so then the far right terminals (neutral) line will be on top and the load (red wire out to coil) should also test as neutral.

Here is a link for reference. Select Freedom Series NEMA, then select Documentation, then select Coil Replacement.
