The rods are beveled where the bearings go on one side, does this bevel face towards the front of the motor or rear?
Thanks

Bevel goes towards the radius on the crankshaft journal. The un-beveled side faces the other rod and piston combo

If it's a V8 theres a squirt hole where the connecting rod cap attaches to the rest of the rod. This lubes the cam lobes.

The larger hole goes on the crank and the smaller one on the piston. Sorry I couldn't help it *G*
