3-40.4. CYLINDER LINER - MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS (Cont).
The numbers on the side of the connecting rod and cap identify the rod with the
cap and indicate the particular cylinder in which they are used. If a new ser- vice
connecting rod is to be installed, the same identification numbers must be stamped
in the same location as on the connecting rod that was replaced.
2. Push the piston and
connecting rod assem-
bly down into the
liner until the piston
is free of the ring
Do not force the piston into the liner. The peripheral abutment type expanders
apply considerably more force on the oil ring than the standard
expander.Therefore, extra care must be taken during the loading operation to
prevent ring breakage.
