Connecting rods

The part connecting the crankshaft and the piston is called the connecting rod. This part is responsible for converting reciprocating movements of the piston into rotational movement.

Increasing the volume of the LADA engine is one of the best ways to give the greatest increase. It should be understood that by increasing the stroke of the crankshaft and using the original connecting rods of the LADA, the usual long LADA pistons receive a large lateral load on the skirt. This leads to mechanical losses. To achieve maximum effect, it is necessary to increase the crankshaft stroke and the height of the connecting rod (center distance). Using longer connecting rods LADA will require the manufacture of forged pistons with a lower compression height (compression height – the distance from the center of the finger to the bottom of the piston). This is due to the fact that using a larger crankshaft stroke, longer LADA connecting rods you just do not have enough height of the cylinder block to fit a standard piston in it.

The weight of the connecting rod and piston-cylinder group is also very important. The more the connecting rods of LADA weigh, the greater the inertial loads. Inertia loads can destroy the engine, so it is advisable to use a lightweight version of the connecting rods (lightweight connecting rod and pistons.

One of the most important indicators of connecting rods is the parallelism of the upper and lower heads. In case of deviations (misalignments), the piston fingers may be squeezed out, and even the connecting rod may break.

Dear customers! Please note that we are not engaged in cylindr-piston group weight distribution. When installing all connecting rods and pistons are optionally hung independently.
