Re: Ford 272 marine cylinder orientation
A similar Chrysler 360 engine topic was beaten almost to death just about a year ago.

Very similar to a RH Reverse rotation engine for a Stbd side installation.
If the Stbd side engine is fitted to a V-Drive, it is still considered a RH Reverse Rotation engine since we always view Rotation from the flywheel end.
I'm not familiar with the 272, but I'd be quite surprised if the FWD-Most cylinder was not #1.
Most Ford engine diagrams will show #1 as the forward-most cylinder on the crankshaft.
