Tap to Rods Relieve Stress


  • 6. Visually check if connecting rod and its bearing cap have actually joined, that is, if no obstruction is in the joint.
  • 7. Minor stresses which may result from tightening the connecting rod retaining nuts can be relieved through light hammer blows. The connecting rods, oiled prior to installation, should tip freely under their own weight. Under no circumstances may bearings be dressed or reworked to fit.
