While I have the motor half apart thinking about replacing the rod. From reading on here looks like there are about three options Carillo 319.00 email from carillo Falcon 219.00 from falcon web site Pro X 179.00 xr's only will be going back together with a J E 10.5 piston and a hot cams. Money is an issue to a degree.. I firmly believe doing it right once is much less expensive than doing it right the second time. I had the crank checked and it was in spec. Really would like to avoid any future problems. What have you used and how do you it? From what I can gather carillo and falcon do not come with the pin and bearing. Where would you source those from?
