I am working on a 1950 DC. Service manual says the rods should be installed with the number making on the rod and cap facing oppisite of the camshaft. The ones I took out were facing the camshaft. Should I install them the proper way or should they be put in the way they came out? It was running with them in the wrong way. If I install them as the service manual calls for will I need to have the engine line bored?

If your babbit is still good and the crank does not show serious damage, I would install them the correct way. Make sure that you properly shim them. Babbit is a very forgiving material and will soon re-adjust.

I cannot answer the rod question but line boring only affects the block and main caps. Line boring the block is the process by which you guarantee that the main saddles that hold the crank are exactly in line with each other.
