Bobweights fitted for Rotational Balancing. The
Bobweights simulate a portion of Piston, Rings, Gudgeon

with Bobweights Ready for Balance.
Pistons & Conrods
Pistons are balanced to match the lightest piston weight.
Conrods are end to end Balanced, the small ends and the
big ends are matched to the lightest weight.
These weights are then transferred to a balance sheet
and used to work out Bobweights.

The material should be removed from the Balance Pads

The other reason is when the stroke has been altered
and the counterweights don’t have enough material.
Mallory Metal weighs twice the weight of steel.
