I’ve got new pistons that are all within 1 gram of each other and the rods are all within 1 gram of each other except one that is 3 to 4 grams heavier. I plan to match that heaviest rod to the lightest piston. That one set should be 2-3 grams heavier than the others. Just for S&G, in which cylinder should I place the heaviest combo, assuming I won’t need to play magical chairs due to piston protrusion?
I’m just having fun here, I know I’m not building a race engine but my mind wanders sometimes and I keep thinking about reading how the #3 cylinder is usually beat down first and is often has the lowest compression when these old diesels get worn out.
