Default 66-6 & -7, ejector rod thread left-thread

I rented a reamer to open up the throats a bit and thought Id better confirm before I turn: the ejector rods should be left threaded, correct?

Yes, they are both left-handed. All stainless S&Ws should be left-handed. The change to left-handed threads occurred in 1959 for all models. The first stainless revolver (Model 60) was not introduced until 1965.
