Re: 6th series rods and pistons

Based on my familiarity with later 3-3/16 bore engines, the answer to your question is no, the big end of the rod is larger than the bore. Two options:

1. Remove cylinder head. One by one drop the rod caps, push the rod and piston up high enough to remove the piston pin. Then remove the piston from above and the rod from below.

2. Disconnect all the rod caps. Remove all the fasteners holding the cylinder bore to the crankcase, and lift it out with the pistons and rods still in the bores. Easier than it sounds!!!
