    The cut out must face the carb side/front of the engine.
    No slipper/tall gearing/power = broken parts.

    Make sure the oil hole on the conrod faces the same direction as the cutout,,, toward the carb... Or you will have even more fun trying to get it tuned right....

    Here's the rebuilding instruction,,, The pics are helpful...
