I ran into a similair problem with my M20 rods as I was building it from a box of parts.

On the M20, the bearing notches are on the trailing side of the crankshaft. Think facing exhuast side. I am going to assume the m/s50 rods are similair.

My rods where also not numbered from the factory so it was kinda confusing to put together.

Hope this helps.
