390 Ford build

I am rebuilding my 1964 390 Ford motor. I have built many small and big block chevys but this is my first big block Ford and I did not tear the engine down. The rod caps seem to have a oil spit hole. My question is do these holes face the cam or away from the cam? These holes are just opposite the tangs on the bearing. Thanks for any info Pete

Oil hole goes toward the cam.
