Yes most engines with a timed induction are designed to run CCW unlike engines with reed valve induction (many Cox engines)or side port design on glow or diesel. With ignition gasoline engines the contact timing must also be adjusted, your engine (like most front induction Enya)can be made to run CW by rotating the front end for pusher use with a regular prop since pusher props are less common. If it is your very first model engine be careful of using a proper engine stand attached solidly, the Enya .45 is quite powerful and there is a potential for serious accident if thing get out of control once running. Enya run best on a fuel with Castor oil and moderate nitro %, do not use fuel meant for r/c cars which has a very low oil %(generally synthetic).
