Conrods

Evening all!

Does anyone know if anyone is making /supplying conrods for the 644 motors of either length? That question has been raised elsewhere regarding the 550 motors as well.

Cheers.
Thanks from max83

Repair kits are available or do you just want the rod?

ok , because the conrod is supposed to be unbreakable ?

so at the rebuild I'll just have to change the bearings ?

I sell a pin and bearing kit as well as small end bushes to suit. you're basically replacing 3/4 of the running/rubbing surfaces in the con rod's big end.

I will get rod kits made soon enough but this month I went for the freewheel gears. they break and nobody else will have these made so i hope to sell them in reasonable numbers.

the rods? soon i think but it is all about turnover.

Good to know, Taffy. I'll be up for a repair kit to keep on the shelf. I'm guessing the big end bearing surface doesn't wear?

I posed the question about rods as some folks I've spoken to abroad have been trying to find 550 rods which prompted me to look for a spare for my 644, which whilst okay now, won't be for ever!

Thanks all,

Ben.

tthe 501 and 550 riod are the same but I discovered a rod from another engine and put it in my 501 and thrashed the living daylights out of it. the rod is good enough for anyone's 501. end of. period. but I am always being asked "well then it is good enough for the 550 then right?"

the answer is; 'probably' but I haven't tested it and I don't want to take the risk for the customer as some kind of insurance underwriter!

Taffy would you like to share what rod you are using in the 501 and maybe we can get some 550 owners trying and reporting on durability
