01sohc 4.0L piston orientation please help!!!

Need some help I am rebuilding a 01-04 explorer sport 4.0. My son moved my pistons around now I'm not to sure how they go back in. They are all stamped so I know what cylider them go in but not sure witch way they face.OK here's what I got all pistons have a arrow on them I assumed that would point forward but if I face all arrows forward my right bank and left bank pistons don't match this is why left bank 1,2,3 pointing forward have oil hole on rod pointing out to finder and weight on small end (piston side) pointing in toward engine.now on the right bank 4,5,6, with arrow pointing forward they are opposite, oil hole points in to engine and rod weight points to finder.this is a 4.0 l sohc engine with jackshaft and one timing chain (left bank )in the rear.please help I need to be sure of the direction of all pistons new to the forum not sure how to post pics of my problem
