Default Re: Question about connecting rod polishing

What you're doing is right. You're gonna ride it flat out from time to time, that's the same as racing. Every little nick or scratch (especially around the small end) is a 'stress raiser'.
From 69 the meat below the s/e eye is beefier.
Do it to all stressed parts. Lightened rockers, pushrods, big end bolts.
