Install the tangs on the rods, on the same side as the reliefs on the piston.

No prob, glad I could help. Funny thing, I just tore down a 302 engine today that someone had put the pistons in backwards and the edge of the bearings where wearing on the radioused edges of the crank. If you notice the bearings set in the rods kinda offset. This is to give clearance for the radious of the crank.
Good luck with your engine !!
