Twin engine prop rotation - a suggestion that the blade at the top of its rotation is heading to wards the fuselage - why? To keep grass stains to a minimum. Rotating the other way (bottom blade rotating towards fuselage) picks up all the grass and "paints" the fuselage - when landing on grass.

Also a good suggestion to use opposite rotation on pushers to tighten the prop nut. I've had mine come loose - wondered why I'd lost power. Still spun the prop - but only just.
