If you dont know what order it all came apart, and which part goes in which cylinder...your in trouble.

i think you're talking about the rod caps. If they dont go back on the EXACT rod they came off of...you're also in trouble.

X2! If you mess up rod caps, ect., your engine will not live long.

If you have mixed up the rod caps, and such, you might as well go in for a full rebuild. You could have them bolted together and resized, but a set of rods for a 350 is pretty cheap now. If you are going to do the whole thing, do you have a plan in mind for HP and TQ goals? Start with that, and you can ask questions and read/learn the techniques and skills needed to get you there. Everybody messes up at least once, some of us many more times than that. If you aren't afraid of it, and have someone to hel out when you are stumped, dive in. It may take a while to fininsh, but you will have learned a ton in the process. One of the big things is don't rush. Take your time, measure twice, three, four times and cut once Speed will come with experiance.

For the next one, buy a set of number stamps to mark the rods and caps before you take them apart. Saves some aggravation when it is time to reassemble.
