Thanks Dan Maybe I expressed myself wrong. Happy all is good. Measured journal diameter, rod with bearing and side clearance all inside the values. Torque all 100 by 100 steps to a total of 480.

Dear Filipe, I did a Lycoming disassembly/reassembly course under professional supervision with Mattituck in 2006. I learnt a lot of things from that and in particular the following:

1. There are LOTS of little tricks involved in assembling a Lycoming. Failing to understand what all those little tricks are could be catastrophic.

2. Assembling an engine is like flying a need to do it regularly to be competent.

Despite having done the course I would not personally reassemble my own engine. I now know enough to understand the pitfalls awaiting the novice. And besides, getting a pro to reassemble a 4 cylinder Lycoming is just not that expensive. Itís 2 dayís labour.

As Clint Eastwood famously said: ďA manís got to know his limitationsĒ.
