Take the engine out its a POS to do rod beaing in place whole sub frame comes out to make this happen if the crank is scratched then you need to remove engine anyway hours of work to refit sub frame to then pull the engine ohnoes: :chairshot[email protected] said:You may want to have the crank checked and balanced as well... So you dont have to do this again. When you have a rod knock, things dont like to stay round under those conditions. just putting new bearings in will only "band-aid" the problem.
Take it all apart and have it done right.

Anyway, you could do it without pulling the head and stuff. Just put it upside down. Pull the oilpan and crank and check the bearings on the rods. Why ? If a rodbearing actually spun inside the rod you have to change or repair the rod. And to change the rod you have to take the piston out. That's when the head has to come off, the pistons only go out through the top.
Still i'd rather take it all apart, rodknock contaminates the oil with metalshreds and i'd rather clean the engine top to bottom to make SURE all metal is removed. Otherwise you'll be doing this again very soon.
yup. provided it is in the early stages- i.e. not spun, just excessive clearance. measure for correct bearing, check journals for roundness, etc.iheart6bangers said:is it possible to fix rod knock without taking the head off the block? if so, under what conditions? I dont wanna take my head off cuz then i'll have to buy a new MHG.
