ARC Rod Bearings


Looking at the Animal Rebuild thread posted up top, they say to use a 320 flex hone to put a cross hatch in the connecting rod journal to retain oil. Should this be done on the ARC rod bearing inserts, or was that advice only for the stock aluminum rod. Thanks in advance!


You can fool some of the people some of the time
If you hone a rod on either end make sure you thoroughly wash it with hot soapy water several times and then wipe it with oil on a clean white rag to see if you still get a gray color on the rag. If you do, repeat the process.
If you don't do this you run the risk of seizing the rod in a very short time!!
