Numbers match like the #1 rod and cap.

Those are there so that when you re-assemble it, the caps go w/the right rods...sorta self-explanatory.


Nissan did not put those on there. Therefore, there is no set standard. But, it is about 99.99% probable that swan is correct, IF, the person that put those there did them prior to the motor being disassembled....if not, there is a possibility that they took them apart and got confused about which way they came apart a screwed up the stamping process.



Tis very logical to stamp, move the stamp 1" and wack it again. If on the motor, they'd have to turn the motor to get it to the other side. If they did it afterwards, in a vice...then a bazillion times easier to screw it up as they had to take the cap off, turn the crank, and then, at some point put it back on.


If you have doubt....there is a slot, in the cap, and also in the rod. There is a protrusion on the rod bearing that goes in to that slot. I am pretty sure that those are on dif sides of the cap and bearing and not on the same side of the rod, when assembled.

Or are they on the SAME side to prevent rotation in both directions? At least that's how I remember them going.
