The really easy way to remember is that the oil groove, or bearing material
side, faces the moving surface. The steel backing plate, faces the part
that doesn't spin.
I can't speak with experience for a TR6, owning a TR3, but on the TR3 the
bearing surfaces face outward, from the bearing cap to the crank, which
would mean your original assumption was correct (assuming the 6 ws like the 3.)
