C-15 and C-16 Industrial Engines – Connecting Rod Bearings – Inspect

The connecting rod bearings fit tightly in the bore in the rod. If the bearing joints are worn, check the bore size. This can be an indication of wear because of a loose fit.

Refer to Reuse And Salvage Guidelines, SEBF8009, “Visual Inspection of Main Bearings and Connecting Rod Bearings” for reuse information.

Connecting rod bearings are available with smaller inside diameters than the original size bearings. These bearings are for crankshafts that have been ground.
