NOTICE

Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to restock items reliably. Many sought after parts are backordered without ETA info -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. We are doing what we can to adapt and recover from the changes to our industry, but currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Even if we can't reply to your email promptly, please trust that we ARE working on getting delayed items back into stock for you, and we will contact you when we have any updated news. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.


When you place an online order request, you can opt to have in-stock items processed for shipment in advance of any backordered items. For out of stock items, you are NOT CHARGED, you are automatically added to the reservation waitlist, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/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 special order or made/machined-to-order.

Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Requested items could be delayed by supplier-level backorder, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information. We work diligently to source and fulfill your request for items as best we can.

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.
