Hey! I'm currently doing a continental z-134 engine rebuild. put new sleeves in currently got all the new rings on the new pistons. in the instructions in my IT manual it says pistons and rods are installed with the correlation marks facing the camshaft. I was told there should be arrows which way the piston should be installed. I checked the new pistons and theres only some numbers and some ++ marks underneath them. should I use those marks as the reference as which direction to install them? Thanks Keegan

Hiya, My manual reads as follows
1. Make sure rods are installed into the piston with the numbers pointing to camshaft side of the engine.
Replacement rods are not numbered and must be installed with oil spray hole toward thrust side of the piston (Opposite camshaft side of the engine
2. Install pistons into original sleeves with arrows on top of the pistons pointing toward front of the engine.

Hope that helps

Some engines the pistons can be installed either way. An arrow or "front" is used if they are directional. Also could be marked front on the pin area.

Thanks. I have the same info in my manual as well. just wondering if the 2 ++ marks on the underside of the piston should be aimed at the camshaft?
