125e con rod

PostPost by: promotor » Tue Sep 18, 2018 12:45 pm

I'm just putting my engine together and have found a mangled thread in one con rod so am looking for a replacement.
Ideally a good condition one without play in the small end bush, and with good bolt threads is what I'm after.

Can anyone help?

Hi Al

I think I have 3...but I need to double check that they are indeed 125e rods. They are in Suffolk and have been crack tested (I also have one with a crack...).

I have sent a note to my engine guy to check it out.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your response. I think I've managed to source one - it should be with me next week.

Any luck with details on yours? Are they 125e rods and are they any good?

Cheers.
