A 5P9705 Tapered Rod Tool Group (see the Illustration) is available for service work on 3208 Engines that have taper-type bearings in the pin bore.
A new piston group is used in 3208 Engines. The design of the new piston group increases pin bore fatigue strength. The piston has tapered inner bosses and the rod has a tapered end which uses a taper-type bearing.
