Not to be rude, but read my post again....i said all standard rotation engines are LH and yes u could get RH engines back then !!!!!That is incorrect look at early 70's Chris Craft Dual engine Big Block applications.
Chris Craft offered dual engine 454's in a 24' to 32' cuddy cabin model boat that had 1 reverse rotation 454, I've heard of a reverse rotation 350 option for these boats also but never seen one.
Rotation direction was not reversed through the gearbox, the engine was a reverse rotation.
I owned a 1974 Chris Craft 28' with this configuration for a few years.
PLEASE READ BEFORE U POST AWAY !!

a single engine turns counterclockwise from the back of the motor ..thats where all the confusing starts !!! ITS A STANDARD ROTATION !!!!!!! just like your car !!!!The port engine turns clockwise,the starboard engine turns counterclockwise.A single engine turns clockwise.A boat motor is high torque.It would have to be recammed and/or changed as to rotation.They will not interchange without work.Now who knows why it is called portside,and why.
The rotation is always specified from the back of the engine looking at the bellhousing !!!!!!!
U are absolutley wrong on all counts !!!!!!!!
