If the bearing is not clamped, the caps on the rod may be reduced by rubbing them carefully over fine emery cloth stretched tightly over a machined surface plate. The bearings in the upper and lower ends of the rods should be parallel and in the same plane. To test the forked connecting rod for alignment, proceed as follows: Clamp the bearing into the lower end of the rod, being sure that it is clamped properly. The numbered end of the bearing should be to your right when the rod is held large end down and with the number on the channel section (see Fig. 28) toward you. Lightly force a tight fitting mandrel into the bearings at each end. The mandrel should be at least 6 inches long. Lay two parallel bars on a face plate and the connecting rod with the mandrels on the parallel bars as shown in Fig. 28. The mandrels should lay on the parallel bars squarely at all four points.
