You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library. Some have 2 use a hot box 2 heat up the piston & put the rod in the freezer then U should b able 2 press them 2 gethher--Some have snap rings on each end of the piston pin.IF this doesn't make sence-Find your localmachne shop.

Why are crankshafts counterbalanced?

The weight of the piston, rings, and connecting rod is concentrated out at the rod journal. As the crank spins, it throws that weight around. The counterweight is on the opposite side from the rod journal to offset this weight. This is why when you replace pistons or rods, the crank is rebalanced by adding or removing material from the counterweight.

What are bent engine pistons?

A bent engine piston is a reference to the piston rod. The piston cannot be bent, but the piston rod can be bent.

What do connecting rods do in an engine?

The rod is attached to the piston on one end and the crankshaft on the other. The force applied to the piston during ignition of the gases is transferred to the crankshaft through the connecting rod. Then the crank turns and the connecting rod moves the piston up and down to either expel gases, intake a fuel/air mixture or compress the fuel/air mixture.

What does a knocking sound in the engine means?

Typically.... Connecting rod bearing / crank bearing. But it could also be piston slap, or flywheel.

What is PARTS of a piston in a petrol engine?

The piston includes the piston, rings, rod, rod bearing, and crankshaft bearing.

What is the purpose of the conrods?

In a reciprocating piston engine, the connecting rod or conrod connects the piston to the crank or crankshaft . Together with the crank , they form a simple mechanism that converts linear motion into rotating motion . Connecting rods may also convert rotating motion into linear motion . Historically , before the development of engines, they were first used in this way. As a connecting rod is rigid, it may transmit either a push or a pull and so the rod may rotate the crank through both halves of a revolution , i .e . piston pushing and piston pulling . Earlier mechanisms , such as chains , could only pull. In a few two- stroke engines, the connecting rod is only required to push .

Can you replace rings in your mustang engine is it possible to pull oil pan remove rod bolts push piston to top of engine to replace rings putting on new heads anyway so access to top of piston?

Yes, just be careful not to scratch the crank journals with the studs on the piston rod.

How do you install piston rods onto pistons?

It depends on if the connecting rods use a full-floating or a semi-floating design. If it is a full-floating design, the piston should have spiral clips that snap into the side of the piston where the wrist pin slides trough to hold it in. Position the rod and piston, and slide the wrist pin through. Then install the clips. If your vehicle has the semi-floating design, the wrist pin is pressed into the connecting rod. This will require a shop press and the proper adapters to press the wrist pin into the connecting rod.

How many pistons rod bushing does a car has?

Two per cylinder. Each connecting rod has two that connect to the crank shaft Strictly, a piston rod may have three bushes. If a fully floating piston pin is used, then there will be a bush at the small end. The big end bearings are in two pieces, but are not usually known as bushes.
