When setting valve lash does it matter which way you turn over the motor to get the lifter in the correct position (clockwise, counter clockwise)?

please let me know thanks.

In the normal rotation of the engine always helps.

Standing in front of the engine, the crank turns clockwise.

Is this engine in the car yet, or on the stand?

Due to being busy with other things the engine is still on the stand, but will be in the car within 2 weeks.
