    Connecting rod to crancshaft installation?

    There is nothing about in in Manual. Did you guys do it? Is this engine (rotax)made in Austria?

    Re: Connecting rod to crancshaft installation?

    It took us quite a while to get rebuild procedures worked out. I found people don't like to tell you what's involved so you basically have to figure it out on your own. I can't go into everything we had to come up with to get to the point of rebuilding them, but to press them apart, you'll need a large press (at least 25 tons) that the crank can fit into and you'll need to machine some tools to help with disassembly. Once you get it apart, it's best to replace all the bearings, seals and related wear components. Reassembling is a whole other story and involves more custom made tools to get it perfectly aligned and indexed. Once you consider the work involved, I think you'll decide to go with SBT or other rebuilders!

    Proceedures are spelled out in the service manual as to how to install and space the bearings and the components of the crankshaft. This is not something that most people can DIY.
