Default Lock washers on rod bolts ???

Ok, just got my 295 robins engine rebuild kit. the rods came with the thin crush type lock washers, Not to sure about that?

Anyone else get rods with this?

Maybe its just me, but thinking that type washer would give up some thickness in use and reduce the torque on the rod?

For what its worth. Both of the rods I bought came with them, but the original rods in the motor did not have any. I went ahead and left them on.

Thanks, I used them, but I have never seen that type of lock washer used INSIDE an engine!

Time will tell

Of note here. The ARC billet rod for clones has washers on it.

Along time ago when I was installing elevators, the ironworkers used a flat washer under the nuts that would deform when the nut reached the torque spec. Do you suppose??

Just thinking out loud. I wonder if the washers are designed to "give up" some thickness at the proper torque so the bolts and nut threads won't deform/stretch?
