Yepper ... as viewed from the front of the motor, staring at the balancer, it turns clockwise. Distributor, viewed from above, turns counter-clockwise. 'Correct' orientation of the distributor is to have the vacuum canister hose fitting pointed at the drivers side head/fender, rotor tip pointed at the firewall with the engine at TDC compression on #1 cylinder. Firing order is 1 8 4 3 6 5 7 2.
PCV valve inserts into the grommet on top of the lifter cover, other end of the hose goes to unported manifold vacuum - either a fitting screwed directly into the top of the intake manifold or to the large fitting coming out the rear of the carb (if not used for the power brake booster). Going into the manifold directly is better because this air tends to be somewhat "dirty/oily", so if you route it through a vaccum source on your carb it'll work, but it'll get those passages in the carb pretty nasty over time.
