Need help with a simple thing. I'm about to install the timing chains and I need to rotate the cams clockwise to line the timing marks up. So the workshop manual says to rotate them clockwise now is that clockwise when your standing in front of the engine or clockwise when your sitting in the car??
If I get this wrong I stuff the motor so need to know from someone who is 100% certain.
I should know this but I just cant remember. Cheers

Most engines,and fairly certain Boss engines run clockwise standing in front of engine.

You should have had everything in line,top dead center before you removed the timing chain so there's no problems getting it together again.
