Direction the spindle turns?

I noticed on my '72 Chevy nova that my speedometer wasnt working. I pulled the cable off and noticed no guts (Just bought the nova 2 weeks ago). So I got a new cable and installed it but when I attach it to the dash and try to spin it by hand, when I go one way it wont turn, but the other way it does. Does anyone know which way the transmission spindle turns this speedometer cable (clockwise or counterclockwise?). I put the cable on and did a short test drive and the speedometer wasnt working. When I pulled the cable off the tranny the end was chewed up a bit. I am going to have to cut off the bad part with my dremel and see if I can lube at the dash where the cable connects and hope thats the issue.

Anyone ever experience this?
