Angry Rod end play

Ok, i trued my flywheels/pinionshaft/sprocketshaft all within specs. But. i have 0.036 thousands connecting rod end play, the book says 0.005-0.030 My question is, for an old 79 ironhead is that gonna be to much end play ? 6 thousands is not much, but as for the connecting rod is 6 thousands too much ? Has anyone run a connecting rod with that much end play ?

In my opinion no, its not a problem.
But, one step needs to be done. That is checking the rod alignment using the truing plate or other setups when the crank is installed in the cases.
