Yes, it's backwards. I wonder why.

Maybe the creator also works on Corvairs. They run backwards too, but thatís by design:-)

Did anyone else click the link and find their way to the discussion of the P51, and BF 109?

I have a model T engine that turns counter clockwise. It was power unit. The fan and crank ratchet are factory made.

I have heard that a Metz engine looks a lot like a Model T engine, but turns counter-clockwise.

Hi Mark,

The Metz engine does have some resemblance to the Model T, although the block Is Not cast in one piece as the Ford is. The rotation is clockwise, same as a T. Bill




These two images are from a Metz parts book. If you look closely at the picture below, you will see, at the rear of the camshaft, the right angle drive for the oil pump. And yes, the rods have dippers; they splash through a dipper tray which is kept full by the oil pump.

Thanks. Now I remember, it was a Brush engine that turned counter-clockwise, wasn't it?

Yes,
brush ran counter-clockwise, reportedly to make it safer to crank with the right hand!!!

The flywheel / fan is very reminiscent of the Ford models NRS.
