    Re: 318 rebuild advice

    According to who? Ricardo and I are absolutely correct, not you.

    As I reported above, not only have I seen the "F" mark on the pistons of a reverse rotator aimed aft (at the distributor) as...

    Re: 318 rebuild advice

    Agreed.
    There is a reason for the markings.

    Most 318/360 engines (or most any engine for that matter) are standard LH Rotation.
    As each piston undergoes it’s power stroke, the entire connecting...

    Re: 318 rebuild advice

    Yes.... I agree.
    But the reason for reversing the piston direction for a RH Reverse Rotation Engine, is to place the wrist pin offset in the correct orientation.
    If the pistons are not...

    Re: 318 rebuild advice

    Either RH or LH rotation will mount the starter motor onto the Flywheel Cover as you have described. This would be a fairly typical I/B starter motor installation.

    Re: 318 rebuild advice

    26ft Calkins Bartender would be single engine, correct? If so, why then is this a RH Reverse Rotation engine?
