5.325" I-Beam Connecting Rods, Type 1 Journals, Balanced, Set of 4
5.325" I-Beam Connecting Rods, Type 1 Journals, Balanced, Set of 4


 
5.325" I-Beam Connecting Rods, Type 1 Journals, Balanced, Set of 4 are ideal for use with 74 cranks and "A" pistons, to minimize the amount of cylinder spacer you need. These also solve push rod length, cylinder tin, and exhaust fitment issues. These are clearanced for stroker use, minimizing your expense and elbow grease required for installation! These are the same rods we use in our ACN Mini-Stroker Long Blocks too!

It's important to know that we recommend these rods with 74mm cranks and A pistons. If you are using a 76mm crank, you are better off using 5.5" rods and "B" pistons. You can use 5.325" rods with a 76mm crank and A pistons, but will likely run into piston skirt to crank clearance issues, which is another hurdle to overcome. That is why our recommendations are so specific.

Regardless of which way you go, understand that we recommend that you install the rods on the crank, the install the pistons on the rods, and check the skirt clearance to the crank's counter weights. You may have to clearance the piston skirts prior to balancing the pistons.
