Can I sand blast my piston rods and piston. I know I cans sandblast the pin hole or the pin. Can I also sandblast my crank caps? Does the rough surface affect the bearing installation?

thanks

Just my opinion, no sand blasting, try glass beading. They do "shot peen" connecting rods to "close the grain" (strengthening) factory rods but not for the novice.
