Default Maytag 82 rod bearing help

My Maytag Has a lot of play in the connecting rod. There is no bushing or rod cap. The crank measures .619" and the rod ID is .648". It sure feels like more than that when turning the flywheel. What is the Best/easiest way to fix it? Ron

.029 play is A LOT!! Almost all engines run no more than .003. The only proper way is to have the crank pin trued and a new rod and wrist pin made. I have tried bushing the rod with limited success. There is really not enough material on the rod. The bushing is so thin that with enough run time will try to walk out. If anyone else has bushed these with success I would love to hear how to do it. The only thing I have not tried is silver soldering the bushing in. I have a couple uprights with sloppy rods that I might try this method.

I took my uprite to an automotive machine shop and they built up the crank shaft and refit the rod . worked real good. cost was around $90.00. good luck.
