Stranger things have happened.
Logical question!
Just checking, once again:
1. I have the propellor mounted on the end of the shaft that had the flywheel on in the original saw.
2. The flywheel takes, or rather took, the hand pull start.
3. The pull start pawls engage in the flywheel to drive it in a counterclockwise direction.
4. The prop runs in a counterclockwise direction when looking at it from the front.

Conclusion:
It is in the correct direction of rotation.
