Default Super Tigre GS45 conrod assembly

Hello i need some help assembling an engine i bought back around 2004, i bought a Super Tigre GS45 abc engine which had an issue so i wound uo getting a new cylinder piston and conrod. I havent touched since i took it apart all those years ago as i had to leave the hobby but now i have an opportunity to take it up again.. Can anyone help with , whic direction the conrod goes back in as it has a slight bevelled edge on one side and totally flat finish on the other, does the chamfuer/ bevelled edge go towards the crank, that is , facing to the front of the engine or does it face the rear crank case cover?? any help greatly appreciated

The chamfered edge of the conrod bushing should face the crankshaft.
