    4-tec rod end-cap ????

    Today when i removed my connecting end-caps on my 4 tec engine, i was surprised to see ruff surfaces on the joining ends. Is this normal for all 4-tec engines.

    i'd say don't mix them up... the end caps for the rods... i usually like to scribe them as i take them off so i know which rod end cap goes with which rod... but in the event u already mixed them up, the cracked rods really only go together perfectly one way... if it is "almost" perfect.. then it's not the right one.... so that's a nice thing about them... no two are alike, so u pretty much will always get the proper rod end cap in the right spot since they are cracked... plus when tight, they dont budge!

    my first time around i had to put the puzzle of rod end caps together...

    wrote 1 2 3 on them with a permanant marker... i knew which ones they were right up until the point where they were put in a part washer and my markers came off

    now i just take a scribe and scratch hash marks on them in roman numeral form.. LIVED and LEARNED

    i like to punch idea too
