    ya when i got on the phone with scat he said "those are rb30 rods" "oh they are listed for a z20". i told him the whole thing. the guy seemed like he wasnt happy with his job or maybe it was too early for him. Pretty much said im screwed and to call the site i got them from. fine i did. cnc motorsport is now waiting to hear from scat. i guess the dude has a large on hand stock of them. anyways i couldnt find them listed as rb30 rods and WTF AM I GOING TO DO WITH 4 OUT OF 6 RB30 RODS??? Im waiting for a call back from carrillo. this build better be worth it and it may get some of the bottle, scooter. side question: how much horsepower can a 68 311 take before it starts to twist? carrillo called back $345 per rod....

    ive never had to deal with bushings. the bushing i was talking about was for the pin but i see what you are talking about. this thing will go on road trips and i would rather just have rods that fit. ill use the scat small end dimensions and stock big end. shouldnt be a big issue.

    ive made up my mind. i will talk to scat and inform them of the mistake. i have a feeling someone in 2002 wanted 6" rods for a different engine and scat has them listed as z20. its a big problem for them because thats a shit ton of rods that are useless. im going to call carillo on monday and order a set of customs...no secrets anyone want a set?

    yes stroffregen i know i am mad at myself but then again im not. about a week ago the block was still being cleaned, valve seats being ground, blended, guides were being installed (not in that order), guides were still being honed, i was still blasting glypthal out, decking, and cleaning the head. so this was really the first time i had to mock the whole thing up. also ive ordered many rods.i have yet to get this fuck up till now so i wasnt on the hunt for it. i said this above but i sent it out straightened. when i took it pout of the block the first time it was bent a thou. i took it to the shop and i got it back bent 1.5 thou. yes i know to have the bend down and to lean a rounded flat chisel in the fillets with it leaned all the way over. heres how i know it was someone. if you had a bend in a crank and ground it it would read straight after. but it was 1.5 thou bent. also it was bent with the center-counterweights facing up

    well fuck. im done with scat. my buddy had a problem with his ford rods now me. its the right legnth and the right bushing for the piston. its even the right size on the big end but the width is smaller....about 1/8". well too late to stop now. if scat doesnt have/will make them ill have to have customs made. stupid mistake they are that long i confirmed with the pistons.

    ya and the rods are https://www.cnc-motorsports.com/scat-rods-2-6002-2086-857-826-h-beam-connecting-rods.html
  9. I’m about to run 314 duration on 91 cam grinder confirm it will be just fine. As for below 3k drive it like it was intended. Floor it, slip the clutch, hold a gear longer than normal. What’s the point in building something if you’re not going to enjoy it.

    here what im talking about thats a bearing out of a z20 i have i know its a z20. heres the box our serdi went out of alignment and sunk my valves 20 thou across the head so i did end up putting diesel seats hot tank stain i just had to have a little fun. i stuck the new bearing between the rod and crank to see if the pistons were good.

    2.3500 one is 2.3494. The crank probably went through some shit before i got it. It’s not hard to bend them .0005” which this one was. The bearing numbers match mahle’s catalog for a z20. The rods are thinner and the tang is deeper. I sent them a email so we will see. I run aluminum in everything. My l had 0 oil pressure at idle for months and when i went in to fix it the bearings were hardly touched.

    Listen, this has been the same conversation the same write up every single time. “Leave Mains at top of spec (given spec) rod journals middle (given tolerance)”. I took the crank out and it was bent. I put it on a v block and made it straight then took it to the shop. When i got it back it was bent and under what i wanted. It was bent after grinding and i know that because if it was bent when they started it would be straight after. Some one slammed it or dropped it. I had to take 3lb hammer to it to get it straight again. It was bent it’s straight as an arrow now.

    i just checked. the bearing is absolutely the right one for a z20. the rod area where the bearing sits is maybe 1/8" thiner so they must have their own bearing number for it. the rods are right z20 152.45 6.002" rods
