Dang I broke #1 rod anybody got a 598 I can borrow?

Post  Moodyblues on November 11th 2013, 10:49 pm

My opponent did about a half track burnout and I was waiting for him to back up and stage.   While setting there I felt a vibration in my shifter, looked at dash oil at zero.   Shut her off and brought it home.

Sure enough #1 broke and broke Kaase oil pump in half.  No major damage though, aluminum rod malfunction.  I was lucky it was just idling.

Here's a new part I have designed in need of a "test vehicle" to evaluate! Will fasten to most crankpins, adjustable wrist pin and rod. No need to concern one's self with deck heights, compression distance, rod lengths or strokes. Just place and play. User friendly. On sale now!

Dave.
