I purchased a new front sight and was wondering which way to drift out the old sight and install the new one. Thanks in advance.

Remove R-L, Install L-R.

I install my own sights using the hammer/punch method.

Make sure the punch you use is sized properly to fit the dovetail/sight base. Do not whack the blade itself. Also, depending on sight, the new one may need fitting. Check with mfgr.

For the front sight I bought an aluminum punch from Dawson. Then filed it to the proper width. Unavailable now, but here's what it looks/looked like:
