You want H23a/F22 rods. I bought a set of TopLine H23 rods for like $135 or so. Hrm, let me look for dimensions...okay im purchasing rods and i jus wanna be 100% sure that these are going to work
they are h22 DOHC Vtec connecting rods
I-beam, Forged 4340
R3-5630IL-5.630/2.008/.935/.866 with ARP Bolts
just to clarify: h23/f22/h22 all have the same BE and SE besides the A4's which have floating pins. The f22 and h23 rods are identical and share the same part number. Same as the f22/h23 crank.no, they wont work. they'll put your pistons through the head, literally.
i already said in your other thread that h23 rods are the only ones that work
plus the fact that the crank end is totally different and won't even fit
i forget which year group, but either the a1 or the a4 actually has a BE bore that is a couple thousandths larger.just to clarify: h23/f22/h22 all have the same BE and SE besides the A4's which have floating pins. The f22 and h23 rods are identical and share the same part number. Same as the f22/h23 crank.
ur right, i just checked. the BE bore in the rods is the same. it's the bearings and the crank rod journals that are different. bearings are different thicknesses to make up for the different crank journal diameters. the a4 crank journals are 0.001" larger than the a1 crank journalssteve, they are all the same BE. You may be thinking about the f23 or f20b.
the only things that changed were floating pins instead of pressed and larger mains.
yes the mains are different, by a lot.main journals are different in 98+ h22's, but the rod journals are the same all years.
hmmm..never heard that before...how does the 97 h22a4 fit in this picture, since it is the oddball. It still has 50mm mains...iirc.yes the mains are different, by a lot.
but the rod journals are different too. a common misconception, which is why i laugh at all the ebay auctions for h22 bearings, they're rarely correctly listed. most people probably have no idea their bearings are either too tight or too loose
h22a1 rod journal diameter: 1.8880"-1.8888"
h22a1 rod bearing thickness: 0.0592"
ACL part #: 4B1936
h22a4 rod journal diameter: 1.8890"-1.8898"
h22a4 rod bearing thickness: 0.0589"
ACL part #: 4B1912
i know the 97 a4 has the same mains as the a1, but im pretty sure the 97 a4 has the same rod journals as the 98+ a4. i dont know 100% thoughhmmm..never heard that before...how does the 97 h22a4 fit in this picture, since it is the oddball. It still has 50mm mains...iirc.
