Engine Mechanical problem
1993 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 150000 miles

I am rebuilding the engine in my car. I went through each connecting rod and put on a new piston and rings. I kept them in order but can't remember if they came out with the markings on the side of the connecting rod towards the front or the back of the engine. Being that I am replacing pistons, rings and bearings does it really matter which journal they connect to and if I have them facing the opposite way or not?

Do you
have the same problem?

The marks go toward the front of the engine.

Put them in identicle as they may be worn more a differnt way or they wont match up turned the wrong way.
