I will check the conrod to determine !

Obviously i will replace it if the piston/sleeve was tight before run in as this will give a lot of stress to the conrod during run in.

That's cool, I like that on this Palmaris engine, it isn't as tight as some of the others out there, less stress on the con-rod. It's also all aluminum, so heat is not an issue...

Can I have your run in conrods??? I can use them for further run ins!!! I normally only replace if I detect wear from the bushing.........
