Default Bumping timing

OK.I am doing this today with a little help from the forum!

My question is fairly simple.....when you turn the distributor base.which way to turn it? clockwise or counter?

ALso what size is that bolt on the base? It looks like 1/2" or 13MM..............looks like I am going to need a Distributor wrench to get to it though.
