Racer, the rods are all attached to new pistons, I no the dot is to the front, all pistons are marked by the machine shop who did my block etc. My concern is does it make a difference when I install my rod to my journal which rod on the journal is closest to the front of engine? Example no. 2 cyl and no. 1 cyl after my pistons are pushed thru and ready to attach to my first journal does it matter where it sits on the journal?
