Default Supercharger Pulley Reverse-Threaded?

Hi, I've been trying to figure out if the threads on the supercharger pulleys are reverse threaded or not for my year and nothing seems conclusive. People say one thing and someone tries it and says theirs was the opposite and they broke the bolt, etc. My grooved idler pulley (#8 ) broke but I'm also replacing the smooth idler pulley (#9) and smooth tensioner pulley (#3). Most of what I've found on here says that #8 is normal righty-tighty and #9 and #3 are reverse threaded. I've already got the 50 torx for the job. I'd appreciate answers from people who have actually worked on a 2000 SSEI. Thanks!!!

From what I have found is the direction the pulley turns will tighten the bolt.
