NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. If you opt to have us "send backorders later", backordered items will ship automatically if we are able to get them within 30 days. Longer than 30 day backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you opt to "send backorders later" you are automatically added to the waitlist for those items, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/Progress/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even if we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate 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.
