    WHich direction do the rods face?? Does the stamped mark that is on the rod cap go on the exhaust side or the intake?? there is no arrow or indicator on thebottom of the rod, it just says (14 pr3) . SHould that be read from the front or the rear of the block . I know the arrow mark on the piston faces the front of the motor(timing belt side). These are b17 rods with CTR pistons.THanks
