Changing the timing belt, before i remove the old one........

I am going to index the cam buy turning the crank to get the number 1 piston to TDC (top dead center).

When FACING the vehicle, do I turn the crank clockwise or counterclockwise?

Thanks,

I always turn the crank clockwise, like I'm tightening the bolt on the crank.
