NOTICE

Supply of many sought after parts is limited. Covid ripple-effect economic disruptions have hampered our company's ability to restock items reliably. We are doing what we can to recover from the changes to our industry and the effects they have had on our business, but currently a lot of shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed).


Please do NOT email to inquire for stock status. Instead, to get stock status, place an order request, and the items will ship if they are in-stock, OR we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days.

Placing an order request adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items. We work diligently to source and fulfill backordered items as best we can -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. You can trust that even if we can't reply to your email, we ARE working on it and will contact you when we have any updated news to share. And of course, you can also email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Your requested items might be significantly delayed by supplier-level backorder timeframes, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

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.
