1978 911SC Distributor Rotation


Vehicle Information: Model: 911SC; Year: 1978; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 163,254;

I recently purchased a 78' 911SC and was performing my first routine maintenance when I found myself in trouble. I wass replacing the Cap & Rotor and wires. After I replaced them I found the car would not start. I checked the firing order and everything checked out. I looked in my Bentley manual and found that the distributor rotation should be clockwise but after checing many times I found that my distributor was rotating counter clockwise and the only way I was able to get it running was to run my firing order counter clockwise. Is there something wrong or did I miss read something? Any Ideas would be great.Thanks,Craig.
