Be careful turning the engine counter clockwise as you could loosen the nut, so carefully turn it clockwise, and you may need to remove the secondary fuel filter for a little more room if needed.

Thanks Barry, I'll do exactly that. I'm assuming the Detroit rotates clockwise when running. If there is too much water present, I'm also assuming that it won't rotate manually forward....Clockwise. If it does rotate manually, I should be go to go?
