Couple of questions.....

1. Which way does the dot on the top of piston face? Toward the front or back of of the sled?

2. New cat piston rings don't have any letters or markings on them. How do I know which is which? Does it matter?

Any help would be appreciated. This is the first cat that I have to rebuild. Thanks

Thanks,

I just found the markings on the rings.....they were really faint. I'll make sure that the dots face the exhaust.
