Connecting Rod Big End Bearing Insert/Crankpin
.Insert a strip of Plastigage [A]to measure the clearance
between the bearing and the crankpin .
o Tighten the connecting rodbig end cap nuts to the spec-
ified torque [36 N.m (3.7 kgf.m, 27 ft.lb)].
o Do not move the connecting rod while measuring the

0.10 mm ( 0.0039 in.)
*If the clearance is withinthe standard, no bearing replace-
ment is required.
*If the clearance is between 0.067 mm and the service
limit, replace the bearing with bearing painted blue [A],
and remeasure the clearance. The clearance may ex-
ceed the upper limitslightly, but it must not be less than
the minimum in order to avoid bearing seizure.
*If the clearance exceeds the service limit, measure the
diameter of the crankpins.
34.984- 35.000mm (1.3773- 1.3780in.)
Service Limit: 34.97 mm (1.3768in.)
Ifany crankpin has worn past the service limit,replace the
crankshaft with a new one.
* If the measured crankpin diameters are within the ser-
vice limit, but have worn to the extent that they do not
coincide withthe original diameter markings on the crank-
shaft, make new marks.
