Separating new conrods
On new conrods it is possible that the breaking point is not fully separated. When the conrod bearing cap cannot be removed by hand, proceed as follows:
–  To avoid damage, gently clamp conrod in a vice with protection jaws, as shown in illustration.
Clamp conrod below dashed line.
–  Unscrew bolts -arrows- around 5 turns.
