Connecting rod reconditioning is a vital repair often over-looked by many mechanics. Con rods may not present the visual wear characteristics easily seen on other engine components. But when con rods are measured often inaccuracy is found in both tunnel & small end bush diameter size. We often see discrepancy in con rod length that is usually attributed to a failure like engine seizure, excess fuel entering a cylinder or when water has entered the cylinder creating a hydraulic impact within the cylinder. Even the heaviest most rigid con rods compress in length & bend easily when a hydraulic failure has happened. The importance of con rod dimensions affects the entire engine from crankshaft to compression.
