Ok, When I purchased a use crank for my 239 flatty, it came with the timing gear on it. The problem I am having, is that the gear had teeth that went in the opposite direction from the old gear. I didn't notice until I tried to drop it in, that the angle of the gears were opposite, and wouldn't work. I figured I could just pull the old gear off the old crank, and press it on to the new one, but I wanted to make sure that I could. Has anyone had experience with this? Was this crank made to turn the opposite direction? Has anyone heard of a 8BA turning a different direction?
It's from an earlier engine, like a 59ab. Used in cars through '48 and trucks through '47. Does it have the distributor drive gear? They all turn in the same direction, unless a rare marine conversion when counter-rotating engines were used in pairs....
