The small end of the connecting rod connects to the piston with a piston pin. The piston pin also known as wrist pin, or gudgeon pin, provides a pivot point between the piston and connecting rod. Spring clips, or piston pin locks, are used to hold the piston pin in place.
Worn out pins may cause vibrations, respectively micro vibrations. Vibrations then will consequently cause damages at the bearing bushes of the connecting rod and the pin itself.
Damen Schelde Parts offers a variety of piston pins for the complete scope and for main and auxiliary engines. From 180 mm bore till 980 mm.
