Default B230F and conrod side clearance


Does anyone have info about side to side clearance of conrod and crankshaft in B230f engine with 13mm rods?

I just installed new oem conrod bearings, and after tightening the bolts etc i noticed that there is noticeable play.

If needed, i can post a video about The play.

Thanks for replies

The rods are guided by the pistons.

Plastigage them so you know the bearing clearance. Wiggling them side to side doesn’t tell you too much.
