Re: BBC 6.135" rods that won't break the bank?
Yes, Skip White is well known to among the worst of ebay vendors. He is the original vendor of the $50 "fake HEI" among other things. Also well known for substituting white box china stuff stuff into kits like this. Vendor to be avoided, IMO.
Try Mike Lewis at Lewis racing engines. you'll get what your supposed to get and he's reasonable. His balancing work is second to none. He takes the time to weigh out both ends of each rod and all the pistons instead of just using the numbers on the boxes. He's the real thing, proven by members here many times.
