1969 302 rebuild

First time rebuilding a a engine by myself. i pressed the psiton pins in to the connecting rods, now some of the conecting rods dont seem to move that freely, its kinda hard to force it back and forth. is this normal or what is wrong with them.

Re: 1969 302 rebuild

if they're press fit on the rod then the rod and pin shouldnt move independently from each other but the pin should move freely in the piston. if the rod has a bushing in it then the pin should move freely on both the rod and piston. i always let the machine shop handle the pressed in pin.
