Top end rebuild questions

Post by Swiss » Sun Jan 08, 2017 12:25 pm

I am replacing the cylinders and heads on my 2 cylinder mule. I cannot find in the manual which way to correctly Orient the rods to the crankshaft. There is no arrow for up on the piston/ rod assy. The rod has marks on on side near the bearing. The manual does not help on the reassembly directions. Any help would be appreciated.

E-Mail or PM if you have other questions. If you Post I will be glad to respond with a Post.

There is an arrow on the Piston and an arrow cast onto the block for correct orientation of the piston and rod onto the crankshaft. If I remember correctly the raised castings on the Con Rod faces to the front of the engine.

The Con Rod and Cap will have raised castings one one side. These must be together when fitting the cap.

One of the Piston Wrist Pin Bosses will have a raised casting and this must align with the Con Rod raised castings
