Connecting Rod Installation

Step 1

Apply the molybdenum base lubricant (Part # CRL 100) under the head of the bolt and on the threads.

Step 2

With the bolts installed hand tight, install the guage and zero the dial indicator. The stretch guage must fit into the dimples on each end of the bolt.

Step 3

Alternating from one side of the rod to the other, tighten the bolts.

DO NOT STAMP THE ROD NUMBERS ON THE RODS! ETCH THE NUMBERS. STAMPING WILL DISTORT THE ROUNDNESS!
