Connecting Rod Modifications
I have made a small modification to the connecting rod design. I cut the con-rod as described in the plan but didn't use the nylon or binding to prevent any twisting of the joint.

I drilled two 6mm holes through the joint and inserted two 6mm dowels through the holes, securing them in place with PVA glue.  This has given me a strong twist free joint.  I came across something similar from my mate who builds model ships.
