243431 rod

I did something stupid... I took apart my big ten engine, 243431 10hp. At the time the piston rod looked symmetrical, so I didn't take a picture. Now, putting it back together, I donno which way the rod faces. Anyone know?

There should be a "flat" top ground into the con-rod so as to clear the camshaft. Also the Briggs manual states the rod and cap match marks should face the flywheel end of engine. I don't think the 240000 series of engines had an "F" mark on the piston which also should face the flywheel.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
