I think there's a slapping piston issue if they are in the wrong way.  I 
could be wrong.
I'm fairly sure someone is about to.  ;op

I know in the tech manual that it says the notch should face the flywheel.  Is there something in the mathematics that the rod number should be up and the notch facing the flywheel? I know some of you engine Gurus can help me on this so I can be sure if the these people telling me it's ok to install a piston backwards.   I have always followed the tech manuals instructions.
