To check bearing to crankshaft
journal clearance, place a plastic
gage strip (28) between crankshaft
journal (26) and connecting rod cap
(3). Tighten connecting rod nuts (2) to
60-70 Ib-ft (81-95 N-m). Remove
connecting rod nuts and cap, and
measure width of plastic gage with
measuring strip (29). Maximum
clearance with used parts is 0.0056
Lubricate bearing with clean engine
oil and install bearing cap (3) and
lower bearing shell (4) on connecting
rod (5) with identification numbers on
cap and rod adjacent to each other.
Install two connecting rod bolt nuts (2)
and torque to 60-70 lb-ft (81-95 N-m).
If necessary, pry connecting rods
apart before measuring side
Using feeler gage (30), measure side
clearance between each pair of
connecting rods. Clearance limits are
0.008 to 0.016 inch.
Repeat steps (1) thru (9) to install
additional liners, pistons, and rod
assemblies. Use hold-down clamps to
hold each installed liner in place.
Remove all liner hold down clamps.
