Putting together my SCAT rods and KB pistons. There were not any directions worth anything with the rods so this is what I have so far: On each rod there is a serial stamp on one side of the rod and cap line, so I aligned them with the inward alignment of the pistons. The pistons are full floating Hypereutectic Aluminum Kieth Blacks and they are supposed to all align the reliefs towards the middle of the block. So, all of my connecting rod serial stamps are facing the middle of the block. Is this correct? I though that the rods had a specific aligment with the piston.

Also...any easy way to install lock springs? :)

I now you want to set everything so the the chamfered side if the rod is on the outside of a rod pair to match the chamfer on the crank.
