The connecting rods are supposed to be three pieces as drawn on the plans. That also requires bolts smaller than I have on hand so I opted to change the plans. I made the rods one piece and bushed both ends with brass. Since my crank shaft can be disassembled the rod bearing does not need to split. I was going to leave the rod squared off, but clearance in the crosshead guide was a problem so I had to back up and turn down the center section of the rod. I assembled what I have so far and spun it up with the lathe and lots of oil. It's a little tight here and there but that can be worked out.
