Connecting Rod

1. Check the connecting rod end play.

Using a feeler gauge, measure the end play while moving the connecting rod back and forth.

End play:

Standard : 0.10 ~ 0.25mm (0.0039 ~ 0.0098in.)

Limit: 0.35mm (0.0138in.)

  1. If out-of-tolerance, install a new connecting rod.
  2. If still out-of-tolerance, replace the crankshaft.

2. Check the connecting road bearing oil clearance.

  1. Check the matchmarks on the connecting rod and cap are aligned to ensure correct reassembly.
  2. Remove 2 connecting rod cap bolts.
  3. Remove the connecting rod cap and bearing half.
  4. Clean the crank pin and bearing.
  5. Place plastigage across the crank pin.
  6. Reinstall the bearing half and cap, and torque the bolts.

Tightening torque 17.7~21.6N.m (1.8~2.2kgf.m, 13.0-15.9lb-ft) + 88~92º

NOTE

Do not turn the crankshaft.

  1. Remove 2 bolts, connecting rod cap and bearing half.
  2. Measure the plastigage at its widest point.

Standard oil clearance 0.031 ~ 0.045mm (0.00122 ~ 0.00177in.)

  1. If the plastigage measures too wide or too narrow, remove the upper half of the bearing, install a new, complete bearing with the same color mark (select the color as shown in the next column), and recheck the clearance.

CAUTION

Do not file, shim, or scrape the bearings or the caps to adjust clearance.

  1. If the plastigage shows the clearance is still incorrect, try the next larger or smaller bearing (the color listed above or below that one), and check clearance again.

NOTE

If the proper clearance cannot be obtained by using the appropriate larger or smaller bearings, replace the crankshaft and start over.

CAUTION

If the marks are indecipherable because of an accumulation of dirt and dust, do not scrub them with a wire brush or scraper. Clean them only with solvent or detergent.

3. Inspect the connecting rods.

3. Inspect the connecting rods.

  1. When reinstalling, make sure that cylinder numbers put on the connecting rod and cap at disassembly match.

    When a new connecting rod is installed, make sure that the notches for holding the bearing in place are on the same side.

  2. Replace the connecting rod if it is damaged on the thrust faces at either end. Also if step wear or a severely rough surface of the inside diameter of the small end is apparent, the rod must be replaced as well.
  3. Using a connecting rod aligning tool, check the rod for bend and twist. If the measured value is close to the repair' limit, correct the rod by a press. Any connecting rod that has been severely bent or distorted should be replaced.

Allowable bend of connecting rod : 0.05mm (0.0020 in.) or less for 100mm (3.94 in.)

Allowable twist of connecting rod : 0.10mm (0.0039 in.) or less for 100mm (3.94 in.)

Crankshaft

1. Check the crankshaft bearing oil clearance.

  1. To check main bearing-to-journal oil clearance, remove the main caps and bearing halves.
  2. Clean each main journal and bearing half with a clean shop tower.
  3. Place one strip of plastigage across each main journal.
  4. Reinstall the bearings and caps, then torque the bolts.

Tightening torque : 14.7N.m (1.5kgf.m, 10.8lb-ft) + 27.5~31.4N.m (2.8~3.2kgf.m, 20.3~23.1lb-ft) + 120~125º

NOTE

Do not turn the crankshaft.

  1. Remove the cap and bearing again, and measure the widest part of the plastigage.

Standard oil clearance 0.020 ~ 0.038mm (0.00079 ~ 0.00150in.)

  1. If the plastigage measures too wide or too narrow, remove the upper half of the bearing, install a new, complete bearing with the same color mark (select the color as shown in the next column), and recheck the clearance.

CAUTION

Do not file, shim, or scrape the bearings or the caps to adjust clearance.

  1. If the plastigage shows the clearance is still incorrect, try the next larger or smaller bearing (the color listed above or below that one), and check clearance again.

NOTE

If the proper clearance cannot be obtained by using the appropriate larger or smaller bearings, replace the crankshaft and start over.

CAUTION

If the marks are indecipherable because of an accumulation of dirt and dust, do not scrub them with a wire brush or scraper. Clean them only with solvent or detergent.
