Too much clearance at connecting rod big ends. 919.152811

There is too much 'play' at the connecting rod big ends. I removed the hold-down nut (22 mm), which was not very tight. The balance weight (?) seems to be a very tight fit. Can you tell me the procedure for getting at the big ends?


Thanks, Bill White

Not entirely sure I understand what clearance you refer to, but I think this will help:

Let us know if not.

Good luck and have fun.
