" I just installed a new starter on my OMC King Cobra 5.7 litre engine (1988), and won't ignite. Seems like I may have the wrong rotation on the starter. How do I find out which direction (CW or CCW) I should have to match the engine? "

"Standard (CCW) rotation firing order on the Chevy SB is 18436572, if your engine's firing order is 127563481 it's a "right hand" or CW rotating engine. It should be stamped on the intake manifold or in your owner's manual.

All cobra motors turn left hand ccw when viewed from the flywheel end of the motor. This is the same as your car eng.
