If you have not done shimed bearings before you might want to check the rods and main caps for being out of round with proper shims between them. If some neybob sometime in the past had torqued them without any shims, they can be bent out of round.

Torque the rods to 35 and then turn until the cotter key will slip thru. That will be very close to the 40 foot pounds.

The connecting rod is off set and must be installed with the long side of the off set turned away from the nearest main bearing.
Rod 35-40 foot pounds
Head 60 foot pounds
Rod Castellated nut with cotter pin 70 foot pounds.

Off set of # 1 towards the rear
Off set of # 2 towards the front
Off set of # 3 towards the rear
Off set of # 4 towards the front

Sorry for an error in my post.
70 foot lbs for the castellated nut is for the WF WC WD and WD45.

Dont forget the shims for the rod bearing caps.
Would be best to get an I&T manual to learn about the type of bearings used in that engine and shims to get the right crush on the bearing shells.

Rod will only fit one way if you try to do them the wrong way you can not bolt them up or turn the crank. Head torque is 60ft/lbs rods are 40ft/lbs

The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony.
