  6. I have a b model with a end 673 motor, I just finished swapping the generator for an alternator, I was hoping to also swap the starter, I have a 42 mt 12 volt 11 tooth clockwise rotation starter. The starter on mine is located on the drivers side at the top of the bell housing. My question is, maybe I am seeing or thinking wrong, but don't I need the starter to turn counter clockwise to be correct with the starter on this side of the motor?
