    Cologne 2.8 piston to rod orientation

    I am rebuilding a 2.8 engine and an struggling with the connecting rod orientation.

    I can't find the j formation anywhere and I stupidly didn't make note of the orientation before disassembly.

    I see the rods have an extrusion on the small end and a cylinder number on the opposite side, which way do these point when in the engine??

    Please see the below pic to determine the correct orientation, also is it mirrored for the left bank or he same way?

    Thanks.
