Bill! I'm trying to figure that out. I don't have any experience with them so I'm not sure what they should look like. I hope to have a guru friend take a look soon. There's been no knocking (what I understand is a first sign of failure), and the bike was running pretty darn good before I decided to take it apart, so I'm assuming the bearings were fine. Another guru told me that "you never pull the conrods unless there is a problem". oh well. I guess I made it a problem;)
