My con rod joint keeps breaking and I can’t understand why. I am not treadling hard and the wheel revolves freely.

Check that the gap between the bottom of the con rod (pitman) and the treadle rail is at least 1/2″ (10mm). If closer the two can bind thus stretching and eventually breaking the joint.
