1. Look for the correct position of the oil hole in the rod. (caps and rod may have been mismarked at factory)
2. If rod cap is simply just removed and piston/rod assembly rotated for correct orientation then piston will be backwards IF psiton has a front and back to it. OR maybe not. POssible that rod was put on piston wrong and therefore rod is backewards because piston/rod assembly was installed using front of piston as reference.
3.HAve to first determine if there is a "front" position for piston.
4.determine if rod in fact has an oil hole and it's correct position.
5. Determine that rod is not placed on piston backwards.
ALL of the above points have to be considered. Simply changing position of just one part might very well throw the other parts out of correct position. There is always (tho slim) possibility of incorrect marking of parts and or improper manufacture.
Note that rods assembled to pistons BACKWARDS is very common mistake made in engine building. Quite possible the rod is on the piston backwards.
