rod fitted and connected to its crank pin in the normal
manner. If measured clearance is found to exceed its
limit, replace connecting rod.
Big-end side clearance
Standard: 0.25 – 0.40 mm (0.0098 – 0.0157 in.)
Limit: 0.55 mm (0.0217 in.)
Connecting rod alignment
Mount connecting rod on aligner to check it for bow and

Connecting rod alignment
Limit on bow: 0.05 mm (0.0020 in.)
Limit on twist: 0.10 mm (0.0039 in.)
Connecting rod bolt deformation (Plastic
deformation tightening bolt)
Measure each thread diameter of connecting rod bolt (2)
at "A" on 32 mm (1.25 in.) from bolt mounting surface
and "B" on 40 mm (1.57 in.) from bolt mounting surface
by using a micrometer (3).
Calculate difference in diameters ("A" – "B"). If it is
exceeds limit, replace connected rod (1).
Connecting rod bolt measurement points
"a": 32 mm (1.25 in.)
"b": 40 mm (1.57 in.)
Connecting rod bolt diameter difference
Limit ("A" – "B"): 0.1 mm (0.004 in.)
