We have standard size rod bearings IN STOCK, but we are unsure if we will be able to get more in the future.
As our SHOs age parts do wear out and rod bearings are one of them. Since some are 2, 3 or 4th time owners the history of the SHO may be un known. The SHO may not have been treated right and excessive wear may of occured over time. This is very important with the rod bearings. If the oil wasnt changed often enough or with the correct oil or was driven poorly the bearigns may wear out faster. Some have gone 200k or even 300k on original bearings but not always.
It is best to change your rod bearings ever 120k or 150k.
If they go out so does your motor. At that point it might be better to swap in a new motor.cal
Includes 6 sets of rod bearings. Enough for 1 SHO.
Read up on the torque specs before starting as the rod caps require a 2 stage torquing.
Oil pan gasket will be needed as well along with oil pick up tube gasket.
If you have rod knock you may need to plastigauge the bearings to see if the crank needs to be machined down and use undersized bearings.
Look below for rod bearings pulled from a motor with 109k. The motor was pulled from the junkyard and then transplanted into another car after sitting. Copper was showing which is the last wear layer. These were replaced just in time.
