To be honest, I'm not sure. The 6354M engines in my trawler both turn the same direction, and the B/W CR2 on the Stbd side reverses the prop rotation using a bull gear. It's that gear that makes the CR2 so valuable, since they can be damaged if the pinion gear shaft gets loose. When that happens, it eats the bull gear and they are no longer made. The only way to repair one with a worn gear is to find a used one. I can get the serial number of the engine on next Tuesday if that helps...............Arctic Traveller
