engine rotation direction ?

Postby Bruce T. » Wed Jun 14, 2006 7:45 am

I need some reasurance that I'm not missing something.

I'm ready to install my V6 into my runabout. The engine is listed as a RH rotation engine, so I have been looking for a RH prop. Now some of you are already saying " that's dumb!". Well I'm not as dumb as I look. Before installing it I decided to jump the starter motor to check the rotation direction. To my surprise it rotates RH as I look at the engine from the front.... which means it rotates LH as I look at it from the rear. I now realize that I need a LH prop.

I assumed that a RH engine would require a RH prop. Am I missing something?
