I don't think so. No experience with this, but? If the fan in the pic rotates clockwise it will be pushing air the wrong way. If the fan blade is reversed the blades will still push air the wrong way. The only difference will be that the curve of each individual blade will be backwards to how it sets in the pic.

BTW, that looks like the metal version of a DMax fan. I used the plastic version on my 6.5 TD. They really pull the air.

Correct. The air flow direction will not be changed by flipping the fan around.
