Connecting Rods Machine Shop Video-Engine Building DVD
Buy the "Basic Engine Building" DVD http://store.boxwrench.net/Basic-Engine-Building-DVD_p_8.html Basic Engine Building DVD - Chapter 27: Connecting Rods By now the connecting rods are ready for pistons. We recommend having the machine shop clean your old pistons for you, if you plan to reuse them. It's not fun at all by hand. Here we show you how they install the rod pins into the connecting rods to connect with the pistons. Then they will measure the pistons to determine the final bore size of the cylinder walls before they are honed. BoxWrench.net is a community and resource designed for automotive enthusiasts.
