It doesn't matter provided you have the Left Hand one with the two oil relief holes on the left journal, either way round will do.

Hi,

If the engine has been balanced the rods need to go back on exactly as they came off otherwise the balance could be out.

A bit late I'm afraid; the ends with the bolts should go on the crankshaft...........

I'll get my coat..
