4/65 con rods

Post by dhep72 » Fri Feb 07, 2020 3:48 pm

hi can any body tell me the correct orientation for the caps on the con rods, is it number to number? I ask because any other engine I have worked on it has been number to number but when I striped this one down the numbers were on opposite side hope this makes sense.

Number to number. You must have a good well machined set! Any I have put together the wrong way round "Locked" the crankshaft. (In training we demonstrated this) In production they were bolted together then line bored!

If it ain't bust don't fix it!
