Post  racinghabbit on January 6th 2014, 11:30 pm

I have a stock crankshaft in a motor and i also have a set of SRP154166 pistons for a 501 stroker. My question is , Is there any eagle rods i could put in this motor so i can use the pistons??? trying to save money.... thanks

not "OUT OF THE BOX" ...
C A T , (before they went out of business), used to offer a 6.800" length rod with a Ford journal size but, the small end would need to get re-bushed to .990" for your pistons; then it would be close.

Just have that crank offset ground to 4.140" stroke with a 2.200" journal and get that assembly balanced ...THAT would be the least expensive way to make good use of those pistons.

With an offset ground crank ... pick a brand and type of 6.700" length rods for the 2.200" journal size with a .990" diameter wrist pin; there are several available from a lot of companies.
