Do all small engines turn counter clockwise?
All small engines turn counter clockwise, looking at the shaft end.
Do all engines rotate clockwise?
Most engines run clockwise when viewed from the front, of the vehicle, or in the case of sideways mounted engines, from the timing chain/drive belt end – which is where the maintenance and service manuals view and describe them. The cylinder numbering also starts at the front of the engine.
Why are Honda engines backwards?
Yeah they spin counter clockwise. The V6 engines spin the conventional way as well, as they are located on the right side of the car. That’s the reason most of the engines spin “backwards”, they are on the left side, and the transmission is on the right.

If you are unsure of how your mower rotates, check the position of the discharge chute; if it is on the right side angled back, the blade turns clockwise.
Why do engines run counter-clockwise?
“The idea of reverse rotation is, when you accelerate hard the weight comes to the left front and left rear, and pulls weight off of the right front. This more evenly distributes weight across the chassis, increases your lateral traction on the front and back end. You go faster.”
