Ford stopped manufacturing new connecting rods for the 1600 Kent engine many years ago. These brand-NEW 4340 RACING H-BEAM CONNECTING RODS AND BOLTS FOR F1600 ENGINES REBUILDS
These super-strong forged rods have the same center-to-center length, bearing bores, and width as the originals. The H-beam design is forged from 4340 chrome moly steel for use in racing applications. The small-end bushings are already installed. Each set is balanced to +/-1 gram, with a nominal weight of 635 grams per rod .
Note: These rods work with the standard "wide jounal" crankshaft (26.85mm width). They are not for use with aftermarket "narrow journal" crankshafts (23.7mm width) sometimes used on Cosworth and Lotus twin cam engines.
