Picked up a good cheap set of rods, what are the options for using them in a later motor?
The rods have 16mm ends & the piston pin holes are 15mm, is the any wrist pin bushes available?, Did i read that you can get STD K6 pistons, with 16mm pin holes?
I've looked on the web but not seen any, thanks.....
I agree with Maj, although if you are going to be getting custom pistons to suit the rods you have to bare in mind it dose become a very costly game as custom pistons cost that little bit more than a of the shelf part and keeping the specs of the piston just about original will give minimum gains and cost a lot of time and money. I to am going down the road of H beam rods and custom pistons, but the forged internals going into my motor are only there for the insurance and safety of my motor and not for the 3-5 hp gain of lighter and stronger parts.
Perhaps a little more incite into you end game would help to point you in the right dirrection.
Thanks for the input, it's for a turbo build- the K6 rods with the 15mm wrist pin is the weak point.
Would custom made bushes be weak due to them being thick wall?, I note that the stock suzuki jobbies are steel backed items, with a thin bronze layer.
