Hi, did a search finally find my post today. Sorry for the delay.
I am not sure if I got your first question. Apologies if not.
I am rebuilding the engine so yes the rods were removed and new oversized pistons were put on. Unfortunately I forgot to write down how I took it off. As you can see from your diagram the oil hole is on the left (if I stand in front of the car), assuming for both piston rows, 1, 3, 5 on the left, and 2, 4, 6 on the right, thus the oil jet string will have a different pattern in relation to their own cylinder bores, the oil jet on the left (1, 3, 5) will spill lower than the ones on the right because of the gravity.
So should I arrange the connecting rods so all the oil holes either face each other, or all face outward?
Thanks for the answers to my lifter question.
