b18c rod bearing replacement?

Hey looking for some insight here, ok disassembled my b18c block which has stock internals. I got the std ACL bearing kit. Which consists of rod, mains and thrust washers. Also went ahead and picked up some ARP rod bolts and brand new piston rings.

Now I had the intenals removed in order, and my father being the own way guy he is moved around the box w/ parts so the pistons/rods are no longer in the order I removed them in.

So my question is, if anyone can help.

is it necessary to install the pistons w/ rods back in the same order I removed them? Since im using new std size bearings?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

this is why you should always mark which number cylinder pistons/rods come from.

I hope you plan on having a machine shop measure your crank/rods/mains to get the proper bearing clearance, b/c you get what you get with ACLs. Also have them install your rod bolts and resize the big ends of the rods, since you're using ARP rod bolts.

And plastiguage, plastiguage, plastiguage. Its cheap insurance. If anythings off, don't assemble it, tell your machine shop and have them take care of things, bearing clearance is super important to a long lasting engine.

I would highly suggest putting things back where they came from when re-using parts. But you don't really have much choice.

Gord Bush Performance is the only place i would call.

For assembly, take your time, triple check everything, i know plastiguaging sucks, but its crucial. And clenliness is KEY!!!
Get a good torque wrench and some assembly lube (or STP oil treatment, i like that when assembly lube isn't available), put on some tunes and have fun. Check everything three times. And a piston ring filer will make your life so much easier, same with a good ring compressor. Don't rush, good things take time.
