Aluminum pushrod installation Q

I have a set of aluminum , solid pushrods to install in my '48 FL. I think I know the answer, but want to double check before installing. Q--the larger ball end of the pushrod mates with the rocker arm and the smaller end fits into the lifter cup--correct or not?

Adjust aluminum push rods with solids on the tight side but still able to twist.
