A connecting rod which is also called con rod is one of the major parts of marine engine. A conrod connects the piston to the crankshaft which aids the conversion of reciprocating motion of the piston into rotation of the crankshaft. The part functions as a lever arm and it’s required to transmit the compressive and tensile forces from the piston and rotate at both ends.
Connecting rods are commonly made from cast aluminum alloy material, which helps to withstand the stresses that occur during the process. In mass production, connecting rod is usually made of steel. For high-performance applications, a billet is used, which are machined out of a solid billet and not cast or forged.
