Reverse Rotation

Compressor installed

Compressor installed

My engine runs CCW (looking with it), single stage No-Name compressor info say pump runs CCW. Thought home free.

Installed, minimal discharge.

If block discharge, sound like air going elsewhere (internal)

This is where I noticed flywheel fins,(Apparently CCW looking at it).

If simple reed(?) type valving, shouldn't still pump?

Would reversed damage them?

If it in fact has reed valves, then it only matters from the standpoint of possibly not getting proper air flow for cooling from the sheave blades.

If the sheave is just flat, then it won't matter.
