How To Install Scat Pro Sport H-Beam 4340 Forged Connecting Rods
The assembly instructions and specifications for connecting rods will vary depending on the application, so following the manufacturer's directions is critical for proper installation. In most cases, assembling the pistons and wrist pins onto the connecting rods is done either with wire locks or Spiro locks, or via press-fitting using heat, depending on the design. It is very important to orient the connecting rod correctly during installation with either method. When assembling the connecting rod to the crankshaft, apply ARP lubricant under the head of the rod bolts and threads. Properly lube the crankshaft and bearing surfaces prior to connecting rod and bearing installation and use Plastigauge to confirm correct bearing clearance matching your specific engine's requirements. It is also important to properly orient the connecting rod cap to the connecting rod. In addition, a rod bolt stretch gauge is used to properly measure the rod bolts before and after torquing, which must follow the instructions for proper installation. This is critical to proper rod bolt torque.
