    i Checked to see if I could rotate my engine by hand & I ended turning the crankshaft both ways.. I was under the Impression that it would only spin one way. Is something wrong with my engine or did I offset it ? The engine was bought & delivered used. Haven’t started it yet. Thanks

    You can physically spin an automotive engine both ways, no harm done so long as the timing chains were hooked up you are good to go.
