Re: BBC 6.135" rods that won't break the bank?
I would talk any and all of my customers out of building a pressed-pin build any more due to the fact you can buy 8 new rods with bushings and ARP bolts for under 350.00 for most BBs. And if pistons are on the menu you have the log-rod option in many cases.
This allows assembling the unit without having to press the pistons/rods together and is a "positive" when chasing HP.
The cost of a set of ARP rod bolts and the cost of installing the bolts and resizing 8 rods comes very close to the cost of 8 new Eagle/Scat bushed rods. We rarely sell just rod bolts anymore!
Thanks, Gary in N.Y.
P.S. For example a piston/rod pkge including 2618 forged pistons, Mahle file-fit rings, Eagle/Scat bushed rods, and set of rod brgs, can be had for under 1000.00 for everything and you end up with all NEW components. Most times a lighter-weight piston and ring combo as a plus!
