It is clockwise, firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4

Pull off the cap and crank engine,Watch rotor! ----------------------------------------------------------- COUNTER CLOCWISE

Depends, some go clockwise others counter. If you crank the engine while watching the rotor you can tell.

The tail rotor is moving "perpendicular" to the main rotor, not "opposite". The tail rotor creates thrust opposite to the thrust of the main rotor, to keep the fuselage from spinning. Most helicopters spin the main rotor counter-clockwise looking from above, which puts a clockwise rotation on the fuselage. You need a tail rotor pushing the tail counter-clockwise to keep the fuselage pointed in the direction the pilot chooses.

Depending on the make of the helicopter, some will rotate clockwise and others will rotate counter-clockwise. However, the main rotor and tail rotor will spin opposite of each other. If the tail rotor spins clockwise, the main rotor will spin counter-clockwise. The main rotor also spins for lift, the tail rotor for control.

When viewed from the top, the distributor rotor in the 4.9L I6 engine turns clockwise.

Because it's supposed to. Some turn clockwise, some counter clockwise. Why? You would have to ask the design engineer but I suspect it has to do with patent rights. A Buick and an Olds. engine could be the same design and if the distributor turns in a different direction, it can be claimed as a different design.

If you are talking about the rear rotor (in the very back); it is used to counter the turning or yaw of the aircraft. The main rotor is turning in a certain direction and the rear rotor keeps the copter from just spinning around. The rear rotor can be adjusted to make the copter slowly turn.

Ford V8 engine - COUNTERCLOCKWISE Ford straight 6 cylinder engine - CLOCKWISE

Take the distributor cap off an crank the engine or turn the engine by hand clockwise and note the direction of the distributor rotor.

The first step is to turn off the engine. When installing, lift the cap to reveal the direction the metal tab is pointing on the rotor. Then remove the rotor for new installation.

To advance, rotate the distributor counter-clockwise. To retard, roatate it clockwise).

On the Ford 200 cubic inch straight 6 cylinder engine , the distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE

1-3-4-2 Rotor turns clockwise. You can easily find this out on any engine by removing the distributor cap and turning the engine over while observing the rotation of the rotor.

On a Ford V6 engine : clockwise ( unless it's the 3.8 liter V6 engine which has the distributor at the front of the engine , that one is counterclockwise ) On a Ford inline ( straight ) six cylinder the distributor rotor turns clockwise

According to the About . com website : On a 1993 Jeep Cherokee , inline 4.0 six cylinder engine : The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE ( looking from the top ) --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Also : The firing order is ( 1 - 5 - 3 - 6 - 2 - 4 ) The # 1 position on the distributor cap faces AWAY from the engine The engine cylinders are numbered 1 to 6 , from front to rear

Engine rotation is determined by sitting in the driver's seat. But engine rotation is of no consequence when determine firing order. It is the rotation of the rotor in the distributor that is important. That is easily found by removing the distributor cap and bumping the engine over and looking at the rotor. Does it rotate clockwise or counter clockwise?

The tendency for a helicopter to drift in the direction of tail rotor thrust is called "Tail Rotor Drift" of "Translating Tendency".

User Avatar

The rotor blades when spinning creates what is called the rotor disk, the disk is tilted in the direction that the pilot wishes to go.

According to about . com : The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE The marked # 1 position on the distributor cap faces towards the front The firing order is ( 1 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 ) The engine cylinders are numbered : firewall 6 - 5 4 - 3 2 - 1 front ( for the 4.3 liter V6 engine in a 1989 Chev - S 10 )

The firing order is 1-3-4-2. The rotor rotates counter clockwise

User Avatar

The small rotor on the tail is to counter-act the torque of the big rotor on top. So it is used for steering and to keep the helicopter stable.

Rtr. turning clockwise. Rotate distributor counter clockwise to advance timing, clockwise to retard.

The engine is driving a transmission which turns the rotor

User Avatar

The engine turns the rotor through a transmission.
