Look threading

I have some Look Keo's that I would like to disassemble for maintenance. Is the threading different between the drive side and non drive side? If so which is "normal", (lefty loosie)

Left pedal bearing carrier (captive nut that holds spindle to body) is right-hand thread.
Right pedal bearing carrier is left-hand thred.
Exactly opposite of spindle-to-crank interface.

They do go backwards- Use a 19mm open ended wrench.
Also- Don't crank them down when re-assembling. Easy to crack the collar or body.
Use a drop or two of blue loctite on threads.
