It is good mechanical practice to replace all bolts that are operating under tension. That includes con rod bolts , big end bolts fly wheel bolts , head studs and crank shaft bolt. Some manuals recommend the replacement of cam shaft sprocket bolts as well. This practice is recommended where the engine is driven at high rpms. It is recommended practice because the tension effect actually twists the bolt and this combined with the tensional stress makes the bolts prone to failure. As it adds considerably to the cost many mechanics do not follow the practice but will charge for the new bolts as well.

Conrod bearings need to be replaced in the engine that is 3y engine model for hilux and i want to know whether any adjustments needs to be done after installing the bearings


If the bearings need replacing the crankshaft will need grinding. After the crank has been ground you will have to buy suitable main and conrod bearings EG: 10thou undersize.
After fitting new bearings to the reground crank no adjustment is necessary.
