Used C3AE Connecting Rods

Postby SixT5HiPo » Wed Apr 25, 2012 12:01 am

Here's a set of 8 used connecting rods for sale by eBay member "jone67".

DESCRIPTION: "Up for sale a set of 1-8 289 hipo rods. They are the true 289 Hipo syle, not Boss 302 which are similar. The machining is squared off, not oval like the Boss rods. Part # is C3AE-D . They look to have new 3/8" bolts (football shaped), have been polished, balanced and resized. I am listing them at no reserve because I do not know their previous history. Check the pictures and check my feedback."

The seller probably switched to Boss 302 rods because they are technically stronger where less material is removed for the rod bolt head shape. The 289 Hipo is rectangular where the Boss 302 has a football shaped head.
