Another new part that will be installed and tested in the current build. These were machined from high strength 7075t6 billet - 65,000psi yield strength, often used in aftermarket performance rods. I beam cross section area, height, flange width, all increased. Material added above small end. Shot peened after machining. Rod weight 320gms as shown, without big end. These are fitted with a heavy duty needle roller bearing, another experiment in the search for affordable alternatives to the stock floating bush.
