From the engine assembly manual.

Rotate the engine until the mark on the crankshaft damper is at 11 o'clock, to prevent damage when installing the intake rocker arm and exhaust rocker arm.

1. Apply clean engine oil to the push rod, and insert the push rod, with the copper end up, into the engine. Make sure the push rod seats onto the lifter.
2. Position the rocker arm onto the cylinder head.
3. Install the bolts to 20 lb/ft.

Hope this helps.
BTW I'm guessing it was the exhaust valve push rod that bent correct.
