Re: alternator rotation
I understand the the centrifugal fan blades are aimed in the wrong direction for a Rev RH Rotation engine, but generally it's not an issue.

(Industry Standard for LH or RH rotation is as though viewed from the flywheel end)
If your Port engine is a Rev RH Rotation engine, and if you can find a bi-directional fan for the 10si, go for it!
Keep in mind the the single wire Delco 10si needs to be bumped up to approx 1,200 RPM, or so, before it will excite.
Once excited, it will remain excited until shut down again.
