Hello, I am Happy to say I have joined the MTFC, and I am enjoying the magazine and all the help on this forum. My question is I am installing my connecting rods in my 1919 does the wrist pin bolt go on the cam side or the other side. like a dummy I did not take notice. Thank you and Happy Holidays

Cam side is the way it was done from the factory though it should make no difference if it was the other side if new pistons are being fitted.

Make sure that when tightening that bolt that you take reaction to that torque by holding the wristpin, NOT the bottom of the rod, or the rod may get bent.

The easiest way to do this is to clamp a drift punch in a bench vise and place the hollow pin over the end of the punch.

How long have those pistons been in service? I was looking at the wear pattern and it struck my curiosity. Were you doing a rod job and rings?
