Thanks gents,    When I looked closer at the real engine I realised that the con rod bearings are not retained by the usual gib and cotter arrangement :ShakeHead: The joint is retained by two gibs and a central cotter with a threaded end. This thread worked out at 6ba, the cotter end was not much bigger so it was  a bit of an education for me to be on such a scale.....OK, I realise that 6ba is HUGE for a lot of you but come on, I have just finished a 4" scale lump!      Terry

Hello Terry,

That makes for a nice arrangement.

Have a great day,
