Theres probes on e-bay right now, but the seller has a bad rep. Ford still has them on their web for $569.99 if they still have any, but I'm just checking here first, I have had about 15 good purchases on the 2 forums and only 1 bad one, so I'd rather buy here first. If no one has any then I'll go the other direction.

Check with Eric at Diamond Pistons. They may have some on the shelf. Have you called SRP/JE? I think they had some for that combo. Or maybe it was Probe that had them.

Thanks, jbozzelle, I will check with diamond, appreciate the tip. I found both probes and je's on e-bay but both sellers were questionable. In fact the guy selling je's want about double ( $920.) what other brands cost. I can get custom for similar $$$ Again thanks to all for the leads...Greg

Yes, Lem gave me his #, I'm sure he's got sources for some too. I was checking here first to see if anybody had any laying around, alot of guys have upped the cubic inches, and gone to the 6.7 or 6.8 rod/crank combo. A 514/521 is a "small" motor here, seems like everyones gone to a 545 or 557. I don't turn as much rpm or put a many passes on my motor as the pros here, alot of my miles now are on the street. I just want to duplicate the FRPP 521 rotating assembly, and I already have the Eagle h-beam 6.605 rods.
