Re: Prop Shaft Offset

If the engine spec's changed during the manufacturing run, the direction of engine rotation might have been changed. While prop-shaft off-sets were rarely used to counter the effect of prop-walk, if an off-set was necessary or advisable for other reasons, selecting the side for the off-set to also account for prop-walk affect would have been logical. Hopefully the direction of rotation of the re-power matches the engine it replaced, eh?
