Today, I found out that when I masturbate at night while watching internet porn I cast a huge shadow on the curtain and the entire street is able to see it.

Define backwards.......

They are designed to run backwards (counter clockwise) from conventional water pumps.

Yeah if its really running backwards you probably just put it on backwards by mistake. Here's a copy of a chart from a previous post. Hope it helps.

Real Funny!!! And so helpful too. No diagram under the hood for a no smog pump and ps where ac once was though.

Thanks Darrell and whoever put up that Diagram! I did not know that the factory pump ran counterclockwise!

Oh and for the smart asses... Never Mind

No monitor muscles here! Just didn't get the "little joke" as a thank you?. This question actually arose after a late night of working on my friends car. HE noticed that his belt was on the opposite side of the pulley then the pic showed and when we looked on the net all these other people had different "remedies" on how to fix the "backwards" running waterpump. once I got the smartass replys and actually some help from others I got the brilliant idea to check my ride out. And sure as shit my spins counter clockwise also! Like I said... late night!!! But hey everyone one is Human. By the way ZERO... Hows that new dizzy and coil helping your lack of fuel issue anyway?

But on the real Zero... Was it a pinched fuel line?
