Rod bearing size codes

Post by Newport » Mon Apr 18, 2011 4:55 am

My HONDA manual (page 8-17) gives a rod bearing selection chart.
This chart provides for an "alpha" character to be marked on the crankshaft and that part is all Ok as all journal markings on the shaft are a "B".
The chart provides for a "numeric" indicator on the rods but in fact I have an "alpha" on each rod which is a "C".
I therefore cannot cross reference on the chart.
Has anyone else had this problem and/or have a different chart that uses an alpha character?
All that said there is something of a scratch mark across the mating joint of rods and caps that is something like a straight line.
Is this perhaps the "1" that I am looking for?
