Default Force 28 question

I am sure this is standard knowledge, but I tore down the force 28 to check it over, and upon reassembly I realized I didnt know which way the piston went in. The piston itself can go either way it looks like, but the rod has a channel in it for oiling the crank/rod area and can either face forward or backward. I put it in forward thinking the oil coming into the engine would lube it, but is this right. It started right up, but dont want to run it. The exploded shows the smooth side back, which is what I did, but not sure if that is just lack of detail or not. Thanks!

Im not sure about the 28 Force, but most engines have a "fish mouth" cut in the piston skirt. Kind of looks like a half moon? If so, that always faces the Intake (carb). The flat side, goes toward the exhaust.
