The main objective of this paper is to proposed a weight reduction opportunities for a production cast iron connecting rod. We are taking different types of connecting rod made of cast iron and steel alloys materials and also compare their mechanical and geometrical properties. In recent time it is very necessary to reduce weight while increasing or maintaining strength of Connecting rod. This has entailed performing a detailed load, deformation, fatigue, stress and strain analysis. The connecting rod is a high volume production from automobile side. Every vehicle that uses an internal combustion engine requires at least one connecting rod. The major stress induced in the connecting rod is a combination of axial and bending stresses in operation. Connecting rod is subjected to more stress than other engine components. Failure and damage are also more in connecting rod, so stress analysis in connecting rod is very important.
