IH 1 1/2 HP build I polished the rod journal which is shared by all 3 rods. It is a 1" journal and measures quite close to that. Have to see what it reads when I finish polishing it. That strip was too wide but the only one I took a picture of..
In the sunlight it looks like this. Still needs work.
It would be nice if I could get that last ring out of the center piston.
On the original compressor the top ring has a notched end and the 2nd ring does not. This makes cleaning them a bit easier because there is no problem telling them apart. They have a dimple on the top too.
The table was a mess by the end of the day. I need to clean off the low workbench and use that and keep the table just for the parts.
