BBC connecting rod offset

Post  BBcomet on June 25th 2011, 4:05 pm

Can someone please explain the BBC offset on the current 2.2 rods available. Is it the big end or the small end? I have done a search and can't find a clear answer and if it's a problem. I have the crank and i'm ready to buy the rods.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Is the big end machined off center of the beam?

Some of the SBC applications are the same. I found it odd that an offset beam (relative to the crank-pin) was not considered offset! I exchanged the "standard rod" for an (so-called) offset SBC application with the beam centered in relation to the crank-pin. It seemed to make the rod/piston appearance much more pleasing. My experience was found while mating SBC rods to a Ford 351W crankshaft.

Dave.
