You will need to find the specs on the allowable side play on the rod bearings.

Does the crank or rod look worn on the edges?
Do the other rods have play?

Is the excessive clearance only on the #1 connecting rod, or is it also on other connecting rods?

About how many miles do you have on that engine?

What I would want to know ... can you install a new connecting rod ... with piston and rings ... from the bottom?
You should be able to measure the thickness of the connecting rod ... where it is worn ... and compare this to the thickness of a new connecting rod.

If the wear is actually on the crankshaft, then you aren't going to have a simple repair.

... Just an idea ... I don't know if this would actually work though.

Nope. Crank has to come out that way.

You should NEVER remove a piston/rod from the bottom. Mainly because you would have to separate the engine and transmission to do it, and you would have to be REALLY creative in order to compress the piston rings to be able to be installed from the crank side of the engine.

If the rod spun a bearing then you need to at least check the roundness and taper of that end before reusing it or it'll likely spin again. How's the rod journal? Even if you use a new rod you need to mic the journal.

I can't find the article about an in car re-ring and re-main on a Honda engine by pulling the pistons from the bottom. There was also damaged ring lands on one piston IIRC causing it to smoke like crazy. At least for that 4-cyl it's possible. Putting the piston back can be quite a challenge.

I'd change out the rod bolts too.
