  • Flywheel rotation

    Would anyone know the correct rotation of a 1989 35hp force outboard

    Shift the motor to forward.-------Turn the flywheel and note the way the prop turns.

      The rotation is CW.
      I have never seen an old OB with CCW rotation.
      Maybe there is some from really early years, and I do not know about the new from late 2000.

      I know snowmobiles that change rotation when running reverse.

        Some MERCURY motors around 1959 were " direct reversing "------Motor was started to run opposite direction for reverse.

            Thank you for your input, I have the lower unit off for some regular maintenance and was going to manually test the water pump and I wanted to make sure I was turning the impeller in the correct direction.

              The impeller will orient itself when the motors started or turned over.

              Where in Fl.?
