"can anybody tell me if the transmission on my boat reverses the direction of the prop, while spinning, I have a little confusion with the engine rotation and ordering a starter,
HELP!!!! is standard rotation view from the front, the back, what, the starter people say clockwise, or counter clockwise, but they dont say from the front,
the internet says view from the back,
whats the deal here, in my opionion its viewed from the back,
thats why I need to know if the trans reverses the prop, cause my prop makes foward motion spinning to the left, counter clock wise"

"All older marine trans did NOT reverse the prop shaft direction, hence the reverse rotatiion motors. Modern inboards have a trans on one side that does reverse the prop direction, simplfying things.
