Floating pistons on pressed conrod
I hate to beat a dead horse to death but i need help. I am looking for info about pressed conrods with floating pistons. I have looked through a lot of forums for info on this but the specific info needed just isnt out there. I have STOCK conrods in 2001 3.8 with Sealed power floating pistons just in from supplier. I have checked the floating pin and the original pin and the dimensions are EXACTLY the same. Weird i know but bulls eye dead on. Both pins are .9055. any tighter i cant tell. I want to float the pistons and rods only probs is conrod small end is too tight. I should have this number in my head as many times that i have measured it but the pins O.E.M are pressed. Now all that said. I have decided that i DO NOT want to kick balance or strength to the curb nor do i want to shell out more money if not needed so, Can i press the floating pins into original conrods? Simple question. I know about the rod clearance. I know about the end clearance. I know about the heating and cooling. Is it possible to do this? Will it last? Am i about to throw away $4000.00?( prepped block, new crank, new pistons, new rings, new cam, refurb counterbalance, resurface heads, etc.etc....) Way over budget on this car. Wife gonna kill me if i spend any more. But if more is needed to NOT kill motor then tell me. I need back up here. I really want the floaters but...?
