What determines engine rotation direction?
Engine rotation direction is determined by observing Flywheel rotation from the flywheel end of the engine looking forward to the pulley end of the engine.
Do all engines spin clockwise?
Most vehicles have the standard rotation, counterclockwise. Only a few vehicles, such as early Hondas and the American-made Chevrolet Corvair flat-six, had reverse rotation, or right-hand spin in a clockwise direction. If you want to determine the turning direction of an engine, there are a few things to look for.

Why do Honda engines run backwards?
The reason Honda made engines rotate counterclockwise — which goes against the normal automotive engine-builder’s standard — was to simplify the internal mechanics of its front-wheel drive transmissions.
How do you manually turn an engine?

What direction does a jet engine spin?

How do I know which way my engine is?
One way to test motor direction is to take your best guess on how to connect the leads, then run the motor and note the direction it spins. If you’re wrong, you undo two leads and swap the wires. Just to make sure, run the motor again. If it spins in the correct direction, you can then couple it to the load.
