I'm having really big issues finding Connecting rods for this engine.
The only one's I've been able to find are $800 for the set... insane. A buddy got connecting rods, bearings, pistons, everything, for less than $300 for his 225slant6...
anybody have any pointers on where to go for these elusive things? I'm not building a hotrod, I'm rebuilding this thing to be a smoothride cruiser.
Everything in the engine is stock.
Where have you looked? Where did your buddy find his? Have you tried the obvious places like NAPA, Advance & Auto Zone?
Um, which engine would be in your Cutlass?
Does it matter? 225 /6 is far from any engines that went into a '72 Cutlass.
Sorry, it's an Olds 455ci V-8 7.5L w/ a 400 Turbo Automatic 4spd
Look here:$40/ea. Link (http://www.kanter.com/p20-oln.html) You will need to scroll down its near the bottom of the page. This is exchange only, do you have the old ones?
Yes, I do have the old ones. Unless the shop ditched' em, but I doubt
Wait... does that mean that Kanter only has Old parts re-furbished? Or are they new??
And THANK you. I'm gonna call em tomorrow :D
