    3SX Ross Forged Pistons/Rods combo

    So I am in the process of starting the rebuild on my stealth. I have the 3SX forged piston and rods. I know most of the time when connecting rods with pistons, you match the numbers on the rod with an orientation marking somewhere on the piston. With the 3SX ones, I see no marking. Is it because the piston is set up for a DOHC configuration and they are symetrical? If so, then how do you orient the rod markings in relation to the block? Thanks!

    Ross pistons are non direction (pin it not offset) and the rods are non directional.

    Thanks bro...I actually need to update it a little. I was at a stand still for a while due to waiting on connecting rods but got those in the mail a couple of days ago. So, now the rods/pistons are installed and if everything goes right, I will have the complete bottom end back together and all the crap that attatches to it. Gonna be runnin the fuel lines from the fuel cell next. Hard part will be that I won't have the heads ready for a couple of months so we will see how far I can get without the heads. I should be able to at least put the motor back in the bay. Again, thanks for the following.
