Quality of a Re-Machined Pin or Journal
The quality of a pin or journal after machining has to meet following requirements:

I) Geometrical  tolerance in accordance with manufacturer specifications.

II) A blueing check has to be carried out on the re-machining surface. Blueing Shells: Min. Width equivalent to Journal or Crank-pin dimensions respectively. Min. Length equivalent to 1/5 of Journal or crank-pin circumference.

III) Required contact area:  Min. 35% equally distributed over width and circumferences.

IV) Free of hairline cracks: Journal or crank pin to be tested by mean of Magnetic Particle crack detection method.

V) Free of Martensite:  The microstructure is to be tested for edged areas of martensite structure will replicas or micro etching with 5% nitric acid in alcohol ( Nital) applied to the pin after polishing.

VI) Maximum admissible hardness of remaining local hardspots : However such local hardspots are not tolerated around the fillets and the bores for lubrication.
