Quick question

Ok, so first time changing the oil on my xr70 clone and I removed the wrong screw and a spring came out along with a small metal rod, some holes in it. I removed the other bolt and drained the oil. Now, is there a certain way that this rod needs to go in? I assume it would be one of two ways which i have labeled in the pics below. Any help is appreciated.

that is the cam chain tensioner, the spring goes between the bolt and the shaft. Put the shaft in first, then spring, then bolt. You'll see one side of the shaft where the spring goes.

Does it matter which way the holes on the shaft are facing when I put it back in?

no, it will move around. make sure you let it idle for a few minutes when you start it for the first time, so the tensioner can pump up with oil pressure.
