We extend to you a cordial "WELCOME ABOARD !" Come on in, make yourself at home, we are a friendly group of enthusiasts, and we also appreciate the classic Chris Craft Roamer, Corsair, and Lancer boats too , as they are all on the same family tree and share much in common ! Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".
Craig....................What did you order from the motor shop ???
Did you order a reverse rotation motor ?????
I don't think the 23 Commander with V-drive takes a motor that spins opposite rotation, but by virtue of it being turned around backwards Chris Craft (and nobody else) called it a reverse rotation motor. We need to dig into that to see just what it is you got, and then we can take it from there.
When the motor is running, which way is the flywheel spinning when you are looking at it from behind? If it is spinning RH it's an opposite rotation motor. The identical situation from looking at the front for verification, if it is spinning LH when looking at the front timing damper, you have a RH (opposite rotation) motor.
