Re: Connecting rod side clearance... How much is too much?
i found this old thread thought it was interesting
i do have my rods in sequence with the chamfer at the crankside
i did this orientation and marked them when i installed my wrist pins.and all the rod #'s are aligned.
the rods are chevy 6.2 for this stroker combo, the machine shop offset ground my rod journals for 3.640 stroke and chevy big rod end @ .940
times 2 plus oil clearance, i hope???
a min. of .010 clearance, i will check this today seeing how i was just not into pulling the rod caps apart yesterday, thats the hard part on the scat rods with the collet for alignment. any ideas to make that easier to remove?
i saw a description from Circle Track that they leave the feeler gauge between the 2 rods during the torque sequence. i may try that today,
i have checked oil clearance and its within tolerance, just maybe some debris is all it is, the 2 rears had rotation till the last 2 fronts were torqued.
will get this going early before its BEER:30. any ideas would be and is appreciated Leo
