    The left turning engine is the same as the right turning engine with the exception of the gearbox. Only the prop shaft direction is reversed. All the engine internals spin the same way.

    "That one", the left turning engine, may be the only one in existence as far as we know.

    Lots of speculation on the interweb about the rumored issue, from lack of flight hours to engine problems.....

    It's sounding like OSH is a better bet than SnF right now.

    I can confirm that there are at least two more excellent condition left handed engines in existence that are available for sale at the right price.
