I had always thought SN had a different prop rotation (RH prop). Is the change made in the transmission?

The engine can be had for a reasonable price ($500), but I want to make 100% sure before I tell him that I will take it. Also, the engine is 5 hours from me so its quite a haul.

Will this engine work in my 91? I hope so....

Thanks for any input!
I do remember someone saying nautiques did have a lefty motor and the change was in the transmission causing a RH prop. If the engine is truly a LH you should be all set, as it sounds like it's already a marine motor their is no need to swap freeze plugs, etc.
Perhaps the question should be raised on
Or PM this guy he knows CC
