To ease my mind I would like to replace the rod cap bolts in my 3500 engine. It is on an L combine. I read in this forum about this and mention of installing bolts for high horse pulling engines which are much stronger. Are these available anyhwere?

Always replace the bolts on either style rod

AGCO has the ARP bolts in a kit.

There is a different procedure to torque them than before

Torque and loosen three times, I think
Be sure and get the instruction sheet, don't go by the book

Also on some motors they want the rods turned around

Thanks that will make it easy to get the bolts. I sure hope mine does not need to come apart that engine runs great. But I sure don"t want to lose the engine either.

I just looked at the part books. The L like I have uses bolts and nuts the L2 uses bolts that thread into the rods. Is it the ones that use bolts only that would break??

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: JB Weld - by Staff. JB Weld is basically an epoxy glue that does an exceptionally good job of bonding to cast iron and steel along with several other materials. As I mentioned, it is so common that I have yet to buy a tractor that did not have JB Weld used somewhere. It is sometimes used so well you can't tell its there and other times used as a sloppy quick fix. Finding where and how it can be used correctly is key to whether you are using it as an "inelegant hack" or an integral solution to difficult and expens ... [Read Article]
