Walter RV-10 rotation direction?

Good evening,
I have a 1980 Pearson 40. I recently acquired it, and got no paperwork of any sort for the mechanical end. I have a PYI wheel that I took off. The owner of the yard where she is up on the hard, told me I should throw it away... Two days later, I realize he's a bit daft. But, I didn't pay attention to anything when I took it off.
So.. now I want to send it back to PYI to be reconditioned. Problem is I don't know the pitch settings or the shaft rotation direction. Heres what I know.
I have a Westerbeke 44B with a Newage transmission pushing a Walter RV-10 v-drive. 2 Bladed Max-prop. The westerbeke manual says that motor should be pushing a 17in prop with a pitch of 11.
That sound right? what about rotation direction?

The good people at PYI will be able to tell you what pitch to set the propeller to. They will need the transmission ratio of the PRM and of the Walter V drive to be able to compute what you should have.
