Honda GX160 QX2 starter -- right or left hand threads?

I've got a Honda GX160 horizontal shaft engine that needs some work on the pull starter. I need to know what kind of threads are on the nut that holds the starter cup to the crankshaft and the screw that holds the recoil starter together.

The screw is item 12 here:

and has this info:
SKU: 90003-ZH8-801
SCREW, SETTING (Honda Code 7613474). Use from Engine SN 1411006.

The nut is item 9 here:

and has this info:
SKU: 90201-Z0T-800
NUT, SPECIAL (14MM) (Honda Code 7348378).

I don't have that information on hand, but I don't recall either being left hand threads. Both are regular right hand threads if I recall correctly. If it won't turn one direction go the other, lol. But seriously, if you need me to look, I can check on a GX at the shop for you.

I'd really appreciate that. I can't get either one loose with what seems like a reasonable amount of torque in either direction. I'd like to know for sure which way to turn before I put more uumph on them.

I checked on a GX engine today, and both fasteners in question are regular right hand threads.
