Default How to Replace Connecting Rod?

Can someone tell me how difficult it is to separate a crankshaft and replace the connecting rod, bearing, and crank pin on a 1990 lt 250? Can I do it myself with a press? Curious how to make sure the two halves of the crank are clocked correctly when pressed back together.

Thanks in advance for advise.

Default How to Replace Connecting Rod?

I've done a lot of things myself in my garage (like milling my own heads n jugs with sandpaper and a table), but I would never try to do what you're talking about without the proper equipment and knowing a little about what I'm doing. Give Vince a call Its like $130 and he supplies the rod too. Even if you decide to try it yourself, give him a call anyway. He can explain the whole thing to ya. He's a super nice guy.
