    Let me just state my question instead of getting into the details of what I'm confused about.
    When I put the rod bearing caps on the bottom end of my 350, there is a little bearing tang or notch on both the bottom of the rod and the bearing cap. I put the bearings in. Then when I am bolting them together, do the tangs need to just be on the same side of the crank or do they need to be lined up right next to each other like crearing one big tang? I'm not sure how much sense this makes. Thanks for your help!

    Yes, tang to tang.

    Also the numbers on the rods should face the pan rail putting the edge of the rod with the biggest chamfer against the crank edge.

    Arrows on pistons should always face forward.
