I even blew up the picture and am not seeing a piston notch. But YES, that notch needs to face rearward for reverse rotation engine. When I rebuilt mine people sworn up and down that they always faced forward, but that offset wrist pin needs to be on the correct side. So sorry this happened, yes its a giant pain in the butt.
