Honda 13 hp. Tork head to what?

Hello. Hope some one can help. Brough a 13 hp Pro max on Ebay. It looks just like a Honda GX390, 13 hp. Ad on Ebay says 99 % of parts you can buy from Honda. local Honda dealer won't help. Engine has no Honda numbers.
Blew connecting rod, broke bottom of piston. Got new parts.
Need to know what to tork head bolts to, also connecting rod tork. Don't laugh, There is a small arrow on top of piston, on the top edge. Does it point to front of engine or back. Back is pointing at gas tank.
If you can help i will say nice things about you.

Hello Paul,

The connecting rod bolts torque to 10 ft lbs. The head bolts torque to 25 ft lbs. The arrow on the piston should be pointing toward the push rods when installed correctly. Hope this helps.
