Changing engine command cable positions. Dumb or clever?

Hello everyone!
Its difficult to find the right folding propeller in Brazil, I just find one in Argentina but they only make LH and my Yanmar is a RH. Figure out what I thinking?
The gear ratios are the same for forward and reverse (2,63:1), so what about changing positions on the accelerator cables? I mean, Install a LH propeller on a RH engine. Is that another gear box issues? or others? I'm just dumb or very dumb?
tks in advance!

Depends on the transmission and how it handles the thrust. Talk to Yanmar or someone that rebuilds that transmission.
