Hi all, does anyone know the connecting rod length of these engines? Or...........got any idea where I can find this info short of talking with the tech? I'd look in the shop manual but I don't have one.....yet.
Thanks

I am interested why you want to know the length of the con rod.

Could it be you are measuring them and comparing them with the standard lengdth?

Graeme,
I was curious about the rod length to stroke ratio. I had read an article from an engine builder and in his opinion the ideal rod length to stroke ratio is 1.75 to 1. I wanted to know the rod length in this engine to calculate the ratio for myself. In other words, I was just curious.

BTW, if the rod length is 100mm, this engine has a rod length to stroke ratio of 1.85 to 1 for whatever it's worth.

See ya.............
