Yes...The magnet would have to be broached on the opposite of TDC, or the crank would have to be re-keyed.

I've actually though about this:

Make a new unit and simply mirror the engine cases, then the engine would not have to turn in the opposite direction. The engine would still sit in the frame the same way. The installer would be forced to make it work with additional hardware, or do without the pedals. A custom set-up could easily be done, and yes it would alleviate the jackshaft...but it would have to be designed for a number of frame styles. I can mirror image the new cases in my design program...simply 180 all of the components and done! I may try it this summer just for fun!
