Very big job, you have to take the engine out of the bike and take it all apart making sure you remember where everything goes when it is time to put it back together, It maybe a better idea if you take it to a shop for fixing

What are the specs for a 1998 Chevy Cavalier Connecting Rod?

Connecting Rod's are VERY SPECIFIC for each engine. In Addition to getting the Right STROKE, Piston Pin Size, and Crankshaft Size, you need to make sure to get the Correct Bearings for the Crank. If you are not going to remove the Crank from the Engine, your BEST Option is going to be Purchasing a NEW Push Rod.

I have a 2004 dodge durango. It runs like the choke is stuck on full what can I do.

well that would be your choice
My choice would be to get the fault codes read first so that I had some idea as to what I did wrong when not following the workshop manual properly
did you have the crank test for a twist after the rod broke as it requires considerable effort to break a rod and that will also alter the crank by bending it or twisting it
maybe the simple thing of not putting new seals under the injectors or checking the pressure regulator setting is causing a high pressure which is leaking past the injectors
May be the best thing is to step back for a while and spend time going over what you have done

I have a 2003 Yamaha ttr125er. The connecting rod bearing was seized up on the crank. I am wondering if I will be able to disassemble the crank and put a new pin and bearing in and reassemble the crank...

Allan this is a shop job for the connecting rod. You should be able to do the rest yourself if your mechanic abillities are good. If you got the engine hot enough to seize it you might have more problems instore for you. Are you sure it is a con rod and not piston in cylinder seized? If it is a con rod bearing see what a shop would charge, then see what is available on ebay for parts. I have seen them (crank and connecting rod) on ebay between $50.00 and $180.00.

Whats a lower rod bearing for a 2002 cr250 and can i put it in at my house??

The bearing for the lower end of the connecting rod is pressed between the crank halves. Most people would just replace the crank and rod assy. as the crank must be rebalanced after pressing a new bearing in.

I blew my connecting rod on my Briggs 20hp and replaced

yes it is possible to put them in backwards, there are triangles on the rod and crank that have to be on the same side in order for it to be correct. If it is missfiring you also need to check you timing key on the crank. since you broke a connecting rod I would only have to assume that you sheered the timing key as well.

How too replace connecting rod on a ttr 125l. I have a 2001 ttr 125 with a seized conn big bearing. and I would like to know the proper way of splitting the crank too replace it

The top end comes off then the left and right side covers, flywheel, clutch and shift shaft. Now a case splitter is used to split the center case halves. To replace the bearing you will need a hydraulic press to disassemble and reassemble the crank halves. If the bearing is seized you should replace the bearing, crank pin and the connecting rod. The crank must be realigned using twin dial gages. Personally, I suggest a new crank assembly be purchased from ( $241 ). I would replace the crank end bearings at the same time and also the sprocket shaft outer bearing and seal. Please rate my answer.

Shortblock, rings/bearings

Yes you can remove the pistons without removing the crank. All you need to do is make sure when you go back in with the pistons that the rods and studs don't scar the crank. You can do this by putting a piece of rubber vacuum line over the studs. As long as the bearings are ok and within spec then you can reuse them, just make sure you keep them with the rod that it casme off of and not mix them up. I don't reccomend reusing them because you can purchase new ones for about 30 bucks.
