Engine direction

I'm checking/adjusting the valves. The manual warns against turning the engine in the wrong direction. Then on every account, the directions are "rotate the engine...." but they don't say which way to rotate. If I am looking at the engine from the front of the car, which way do I rotate it. Clock wise or Counter clockwise?

If you stand in front of the engine, the rotation should be clockwise. See the picture below for the direction the camshaft should go, but don't turn the engine over using the camshaft.



By the way: the 1978 230 is a W123, for which there is a seperate subforum:
