The first step is to clean which our method is to oven bake (which also stress relieves)
then shot blast. This process eliminates all grease and rust leaving a like new appearance.
Rods and caps are cut, bolt holes chamfered then new ARP bolts are pressed in, caps attached
then torqued and loosened five times before resizing to reduce the friction factor when torquing  
Rods are then resized to spec and checked with
a precise gage to insure crush and roundness
Small ends of rods are checked with a precise
gauge to insure that there will be a proper press fit
Yes even new parts must be checked. This set of pistons were in
tolerance but per our spec a couple needed some slight honing
Pistons and rods are laid in a pattern of rights and lefts, rods heated and pistons installed
Note that pistons that are press fit should never be pressed on without heating the rods
with a controlled temperature.
