Crankshaft and Connecting Rods
If any crankpin has worn past the service limit, replace the
crankshaft with a new one.
If the measured crankpin diameters are not less than the
service limit, but do not coincide with the original diameter
markings on the crankshaft, make new marks on it.
Crankpin Diameter Marks
None 37.984 ∼ 37.992 mm (1.4954 ∼ 1.4957 in.)
37.993 ∼ 38.000 mm (1.4958 ∼ 1.4961 in.)

Measure the connecting rod big end inside diameter, and
mark each connecting rod big end in accordance with the
Tighten the connecting rod big end nuts to the specified
torque (see Connecting Rod Installation).
The mark already on the big end should almost coincide
with the measurement.
