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.
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.
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.
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.
Take the distributor cap off an crank the engine or turn the engine by hand clockwise and note the direction of the distributor rotor.
On the Ford 200 cubic inch straight 6 cylinder engine , the distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE
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.
Rotor turns counterclockwise.

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.

To advance, rotate the distributor counter-clockwise. To retard, roatate it 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.
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".
Counter rotating blades on a helicopter are used to replace the traditional tail rotor found on most aircraft. Because the blades oppose each other (and therefore cancel out the torque created by the other blade) a tail rotor is not necessary. This allows all of the engine's power to be used for lift rather than powering the additional 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
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.
The firing order is 1-3-4-2. The rotor rotates counter clockwise
Rtr. turning clockwise. Rotate distributor counter clockwise to advance timing, clockwise to retard.
On number one terminal, put engine at tdc on 1. If engine/rotor hasn't moved, leave rotor alone.
No, that is impossible. You see, helicopters must have that tail rotor in order to keep steady. Without one, it would spin out of control in the opposite direction that the main rotor is going. The tail rotor provides a counter form of propulsion that keeps the fuselage (body) of the copter from spinning out of control. The pilot also controls the speed and angle of the tail rotor, so as to turn the helicopter by speeding up or slowing it down. As for Chinooks, those big military helicopters with two main rotors, each rotor spins in the opposite direction to stop from entering a tailspin.
The engine is driving a transmission which turns the rotor
