Installation Instructions:
To install your ARC rod, you will need a 12-point 1/4" socket and a quality inch pound torque wrench. You will need an outside micrometer, dial bore gauge or plasti gauge, and oil.

Measure the crank pin diameter with the outside mic. It should measure 1.180" +/- .0005". Measure in several spots to ensure roundness. If out of round more than .0005", it probably should be replaced. The crank pin finish should be smooth to the touch.

When disassembling the rod, notice on the side of the rod with the part number that there are two dots next to the separation point of the beam and cap. These dots help to reorient the cap and beam when assembled. The side of the rod with the part number engraved will always face the side-cover side.

Make sure the bearing and rod serrations are clean, and install the bearings. Lubricate the rod bolt threads, and hand-tighten the bolts. Using the torque wrench, tighten the bolts to 60" lbs. Alternate each side to increase the torque by 20" lb at a time until you reach 150" lb. Then, loosen the bolts, and repeat the torque process. This helps to seat the rod bearing, especially on a new rod. Measure the bore with your dial bore gauge opposite the parting lines. If using a plasti gauge, you will have to install the rod on the crank and use in accordance with the plasti gauge's instructions.

The rod bore should measure 1.183" +/- .0005". With plasti gauge, you are looking for about .003" clearance. From .0025-.0035" clearance is acceptable. Anything outside that dimension, please call 800-521-3560 for a recommendation.

Once clearance is set, apply oil to the rod, crank, and wrist pin, and install this time torque to 170" lb.

Improperly torqueing rod bolts is one of the most common causes of rod failure.

Refer to instructions shipped with all rods for more detailed instructions.
