How do you reverse engine rotation?

This is done by making the angle of the drive gear on the cam and its mating gear opposite, when the cam turns the opposite direction. This makes the thrust of the gears in the opposite direction. For example the SE Chevy thrust is up and is taken by the base of the distributor housing and the drive gear.
