Number stamped on connecting rod indicates cylinder it should be installed in. Number must be on oil
cooler side of cylinder block when installing connecting rod to prevent damage to equipment.

Place piston ring compressor (32) and connecting rod and piston assembly (9) over cylinder to be serviced. Position pis-
ton ring compressor squarely on cylinder liner (3) flange.
