As far as I know it doesn't matter. You just need to make sure you have the proper prop put on it. Right turning or left turning.

Counter-clockwise on all except for most outboards. They run like crap backwards but will run. Some chain saw and leaf blower motors run the opposite way. For those you need not only a different prop but a different flex cable.
