I have a Caille Bantam 2hp inboard. Aluminum crankcase,cast iron cylinder, bronze connecting rod
Rod to crank fit has been adjusted and is OK.
Rod to piston pin {pin is .0625 diameter) fit is loose. It has been elongated about .010".
When engine is turned over by hand you can hear a click/knock.
Questions:
1. Should rod to piston pin fit be repaired ?
2. If so, Bush and ream rod or Make oversize
pin and ream piston & rod ?
Which is best ?
3. Suggestion on Person or Shop to do repair if
needed. ?
I do not have the equipment (or knowledge)
to do this repair and Local Machine Shops
are not eager to take it on.
Thanks for any info./help.

I restored a similar engine, and had to ream out the piston, as the gudgeon (piston) pin had become worn and loose. Ended up sourcing a pin from a vintage motorcycle( UK -Scott Flying Squirrel) spares company, which had to be reduced in length.
