To my eye the bottom pulley should rotate in an anticlockwise direction but the arrow on it points clockwise... Brand new just out of the box.. so I think I will just turn it round.

The tooth profile is different.
 
It's correct - it rotates clockwise

It's been made totally wrong, and no amount of pulley swapping or fettling will make it serviceable. Post it to me and I'll dispose of it for you via an approved environmentally acceptable process*

yeah, when pedaling forwards at least it is supposed to spin clockwise :smile: that is of course looking at it from the drive train or off side of the bike

not a numpty, we all make silly mistakes occasionally and that's what this forum is here for :smile: one of my most memorable is inflating a tyre to 15 PSI and riding it, there is a fair few pages on that on here somewhere! all i can remember is a lot of very tyreing puns and a lot of micky taking and i ended up slightly embarrassed!
Cheers Ed

I still tell the story of "the day Young Ed admitted he'd messed up his tyre pressures on the internet" to the family around the table at Christmas day.

At least you have me to keep you company, I who knoweth not which way round his chain doth rotate.

School spanner syndrome strikes again !
