The cam must be repaced with a "conventional" one. Melling offers a "stock replacement', part no. SYB-2. There may be some "performance' grinds out there.

The distributor gear will also need to be changed to the "conventional" one.

Also, You must have a starter that spins in the right direction.

Boat engine

Was this a full fledged boat motor with the aluminum front cover, twin side draft carbs, wet exhaust etc? They also have a valve cover oil fill which is unusual for automotive Y-blocks. The counter-rotation version had a gear drive camshaft with no chain - you would have seen it if you had the front cover off.

Chances are - its an air/fuel/spark thing........
