Default Wisconsin BKND help!

Hello Guys,
I am new here and this is my first post. I have been lurking around for about a week and decided I need to be a part of this group. I just bought a Waste Water Pump (CMC Brand) powered by a Wisconsin BKND at an auction. I have given it a good cleaning, took apart the carburetor (Zenith) and cleaned all the jets, actually looked good and clean inside. Cleaned the fuel tank, because the tank was a little rusty, added new fuel line and put in an inline filter. It has great compression and I have leaned a lot about a magneto, It doesn’t matter how slow you turn the engine when that magneto fires you will know if it works or not. (Knocked the crap out of me).
The question I have before I pull the rope on this too much is the rotation, know where on it do I see an arrow showing rotation but I assume it is clockwise. Can someone confirm this? And any other tips about starting this for the first time. BTW I have disconnected the trash pump for my initial run. Thanks

This site has a lot of information on Wisconsin engines.

Rotation is clockwise facing the flywheel end of the crank.
