the dome always goes to the exhaust side, if it was the other way around it would hit the quench pad of the head so they can only work one way, if a piston was at top dead center with the dome wrong you couldn`t bolt the head on. The numbers go to the outside, the locks on the rod bearings always point to the outside of the block. But honestly, and no disrespect intended here, If you didn`t know the answers I think I`d learn more before I jumped on rebuilding it.

I was thinking that same thing before I even read your reply, but I thought it sounded rude (you put it very politely though ). But if you ARE going to build it, take your time and go slowly and double (or tripple) check EVERYTHING as you go
