Am I right?

That's my guess. Probably had a jackshaft built into the engine plate with the sprocket on the right side, and they bought it as a roller, no engine, no plate. Slapped a motor on there, and now it spins the wrong way. Gear ratio might be wrong too, if it used compound gearing with the jackshaft.

Cheapest fix is to put the seat in backwards.
