Identifying sbc rods (billet)

Post by rewguy » Mon Dec 10, 2018 2:33 pm

I've had a few diff sets of the billet chinese rods, and these are NOT at all like those that I've seen. They are 6" long, 2.100/.927, std width. They have a greenish/yellow hue (almost old holley carb like color). They don't have capscrews, but moreso a stud. Still 7/16 fine thread. I can make out NO lettering or insignia on either end of the stud.

No bushing in small end?

Oliver i beams run a cap screw,the old crower grand national rods had a bolt and nut in their steel rods and their ti rods as well. Both crower ti and steel looked the same dimensionally except for the weight and PRICE tag.

I have a set of those, I'll take a pic if someone wants to see them.
Don't to here they are, they don't look the same.
