Land Rover engine rebuild stuff you must know - CON ROD
There are more things to check with a feeler gauge than just valve
clearances on you Land Rover four cylinder engine. In this video we share
with you how to measure of couple of things on the 300tdi Land Rover engine
when undertaking repairs or overhauling an engine. Checks you should carry
out when removing the con rod from the crank.
We look at crankshaft end float and the need to check for distortion in
the con rod big end.
Blueprint 103 - Connecting Rods
Connecting rods are the crux of the engine. They're responsible for
carrying the force of the explosions that occur in the combustion chamber
and using it to turn the crankshaft. Oil clearance specifications of the
"big end" and "small end" are crucial to maintaining consistent oil
In this video we take 3 measurements:
Rod Journal (also called Crank Pin) Diameters
"Big End" Bore diameter
Using the Journal diameters and the "Big End" Bores, you can calculate your
oil clearances of each bearing. The process is illustrated here. Anyone
rebuilding an engine who doesn't know its history should check all of these
clearances whether or not they're re-using the rods. If the crank,
bearings or connecting rods are going to be replaced, it's imperative that
you measure the new parts as well to ensure they're in spec.
A Better Way to Install Rods on Pistons

Installing The Pistons
Installing the pistons in my 5.4l for my F150. I used a Sealed Power ring
and piston set from Napa. I wanted to go with forged, but my engine guy
told me that in a street/strip block, forged pistons will actually
deteriorate the block faster and
are much noisier.
