H section rods offer the race engine builder the ultimate in strength, durability and dimensional accuracy with a weight saving of between 30-60g over conventional forged types.
All steel rod sets are balanced to within 1g and are fitted with ARP cap bolts and small end bushes.
They are also shot peened to improve crack resistance. All rods are priced each. Many other types and lengths can be made to special order - please contact us for further information.
Con rods for BDA, Lotus Twin Cam, Pre-X/Flow and X/Flow engines are offered in wide or narrow journal types. Wide journal refers to the width of the big end journal on the con rod being made to the same width as the standard con rod, i.e. 26.85mm. As an alternative, narrow journal rods are also available, where the big end journal has been reduced to the width of 23.7mm. This gives the advantages of less rotating mass in the engine, less friction on the big end bearing (as this is also narrower), and less drag from oil within the crankcase since the narrow rod will pass through the oil with less resistance. In order to use such rods, a narrow journal crank must also be purchased.Ford Pre-Crossflow OHV Kent
