Which way do the reed valves and plates face?

I would like to know what way these face.


My friend had same kind problem and it threw the rob out of the case.

I noticed there is indents in the plates where the reed valves go. Do they face up or down ?

Well, both. One (intake set) is down to draw air, then that set springs up as the piston goes up, which pushes the uppers (set) open to exhaust the compressed air.

I don't see how that being wrong could throw a rod, unless there was a physical object in the way.

Which gets me to: what model do you have?
