Default Re: Machining a Connecting Rod Casting

I made a con rod for my Amanco, see which should provide some answers. In short, you will need to clean up one face of the casting so you can bolt it square to the milling table then bore the big and little ends. Drill the holes for the big end bolts, then slit the big end.

Get in touch with me if you have any questions
