Six boxes of rods not in the pile! How many is that?
Don't bother me now! I'm still counting exhaust manifolds.
Vendors do buy rods to repour and sell. You may have a bit of money in that pile!
Enough to make a balanced set and plenty of spares.
i guess 70
I see several of the earlier heavier rods, but mostly they look like the later lighter rods. Are the bearings mostly good or mostly bad? I see one heavier rod with a chunk out of the bearing edge. Looks like quite a few good original crank end bolts also. Not many wrist-pin bolts however.
My guess would be around 120 rods in the pile.
I have collected rods for 18 years. Kep has it correct makes it easier to pore a balanced set.
John , I have invested a good bit of money in Rods probably average $5-6 dollars per rod with cap.
Some cores end up being unusable. Many caps are filed beyond use.
Dean -- Just put in a double stack of shims with those filed caps.
i would double stack the shims.
