Connecting rod installation

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I have changed pistons in my engine now and is done, head is on place and everything.

BUT now i saw in the joyner service manual that it was important that the connecting rods was installed "the right way" (D. When installing piston and connecting rod assembly into cylinders. The marked surfaces of the
connecting rod and piston must face the front of engine (fig.3-10).)

The pistons is correctly installed but when i installed the connecting rods i couldnt see any difference from side to side so i just put them back in and now one of them is "rotated" 180 degree if i looked at the texts on them.

So, does it matter? Is the manual a little bit "universal" or it is important? Has it to do with some oil lubrication? The only thing i noticed when i intstalled them was the bearing shell that has to be put back right so the notch goes in to the groove.

 

Anyone has any good answear to this?

...i dissamble everything again tomorrow and start over because i need to fix one of the threads to the top anyway.

I think the rods need to be faced with the correct side to the "front" because of the lubrication. There is a a little groove on the "front/right" side of the counterweights (beside the rod) where i think the oil goes through and then lubricate the bearing shell via the rod. There is certainly a little track or something on the rod side that line up with the groove on the counterweight.

If no one know for sure, i will let you now after dissamble everything...again...

Great, yes i change them to. So another question that we discussed at work was, Which side of the engine that is told as "front"?

I have learned that if the piston has an arrow it will always point at flywheel, and if the arrow goes other way (up/down) it will always point at exhaust.

But in the manual it says that piston and rod shall be faced at the same way, to the front. And the one at my job says that front of an engine is where all the belts is, not the flywheel side. So now im confused.  Any ides?

Shall the piston and rods point at flywheel or the other end?

Okay, my english is not the best, so what you mean is that flywheel side of the motor is back and the side where you put the alternator, belts and so on is the front?

My diffs are original, so far. This orginal motor that i fix now is only for inspection, then i have a ported and tuned zx1000r engine with a skyline diff that i will put in. But cant do it before the swedish inspection company has get me green light for two more years 🙂 We have to check those machine every two year so everything is okay, and changing the orginal engine is not okay, so stupid. 215 bhp is better in my ears than those 20-25 🙂

I just want to say that everything works perfect...after the second rebuild 😛 I did change the piston so the arrow points to the right (water pump side) and the connecting rods marks points to the correct side. I had some problems with the distruberator but now it works. Thanks again for all the help, its realy great with this kinds of forum.

      I just went once to do some mudding and loved it.
      Looking around and the only utv for 4 i could find in my price range was a joyner.
      None of the people that were there had joyners. And when i asked why all they could say is that bc its chinese and not good.
      Well none of them have ever owned one so how could they tell its junk?
      So can anyone tell me if its worth buying a joyner or save more and buy a different utv?
      Thank you

      Bought new in 2014 Renegade 1100.       Life got in the way and only put 80 miles on it up till now.  During that 5 year time the fuel would go bad and I would drain the tank and refill. Always used 100% gas [never ethanol].  It is garage kept and never spent a night outside.
      Now that I have time to use it, I am having issues.   It will start and run fine for about 10 minutes, and then it will start to miss and then eventually die. After letting it sit for about 30 minutes is will start back up, and start doing the same thing again.
      I have put new plugs in it and have replaced the fuel filter. 
      Any suggestions on what this problem could be?
      Thanks in advance for your help,
      Steve B.

      Hello everybody, Im new the forum actually it's my 1st post. I just recently purchased a used 08 trooper at the local bank. It has 535 miles and its camo. That had it as a repo, everything seems to be in really good shape. There's just 1 problem it won't run. They said it needed a ECU I purchased a ECU still nothing. All the lights work, 4 wheeldrive works, horn works, and everything else up front. The engine will crank but wont start no fuel or spark, fuel pump won't even run and the fan will not come on. Crossed over the relays to turn fans on fuel pump and get spark. Still nothing, I would really appreciate any good advise on which direction to go next.
      Thanks Seth

      Just bought a well used 2500 with 6,800 hours on the clock. Guy said it had a bad engine but it did run and drive when I tested it and it billowed white smoke. I found oil in the water and a disconnected fan switch. A compression test yielded 160 psi in one cylinder and 240 psi in the other. I put 15 psi in the cooling system and it dropped to zero in 30 seconds.  I removed the spark plugs and put 100 psi of air into each spark plug hole and coolant few out of the uncapped radiator. So I figured I had two bad head gaskets.
      I took the heads of the engine and found two bad head gaskets. Cleaned them up, checked for cracks, found none and reassembled with new genuine Kawasaki head gaskets.  Started engine and it ran well but smoked constantly at idle and at full throttle. Comprression test now yielded 240 psi and 245 psi which is higher than I have ever seen in any gasoline engine I have ever tested. I put 100 psi into each spark plug hole and no water or air bubbled out of the open radiator cap. When I put 15 psi into the cooling system it held pressure. Also fixed the fan switch connection and installed a digital temperature guage so I know exactly what temperature the engine is seeing and that the thermostat and cooling system is functioning properly.
      The engine smokes like it is worn out and needs overbored but with those great compression numbers it is had to believe. I am ready to pull the engine and tear it down but thought I would post to this forum before I did.
      This is my first Mule. I only paid $800 for it and might decide to just part it out depending what I find inside the engine. Brakes are good, trans works fine and there is almost no rust anywhere.
      Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks, Mike
