New bearing shells into 200tdi

Recommended Posts

I am fitting new shells to the the mains and con rods on a 200tdi. Should I reuse the the old bolts in the main bearings and the old nuts on the con rods please?

Thanks Andrew

I did, so long as they torque up ok they will be fine, just ensure the threads are dry & clean.

You are supposed to use new nuts on the con rods as per the workshop manual.

4. Pull both connecting rod big ends on to the journals and fit the caps ensuring the the numbers match and orientation is correct.
Retain the caps with new nuts but do not tighten at this stage.

Thank you both. I saw that in the worshop manual, but Paddocks and Island don't list them online, so I wondered how important it was.
