    I'm not saying it was the case with those rods, but you folks be careful buying new Carrillos listed on eBay or wherever. They made a batch for me that were the incorrect length, took 'em back, then put them up for sale on eBay. The people who bought them are probably finding out "oh gee, these won't work..."

              Zero compression 'cos it wouldn't even turn over. (rods were made 2mm too long!)

                      ebay purchase

                      I just looked at the rods and also i've purchased a suppositly rare brain
                      ( 10.200 RPM) and on the paper included with the rods it says date of purchase: august 99 by Two Brothers .po # 3756
                      Make: Hont6*55118 bolts 5/16 SPS-CARR
                      center to center 5.118 weights
                      P.E Bore 0.7884 total: 376
                      B.E Bore 1.6932 rotating 271

                      What do you think?

                      $405. for the rods and $175. for the brain....seems ok at the time.

                        Those words may look like English, but that's not English.

                          Dumbass Arkansas hillbilly guesses that means 5.118" center to center.

                          Long rods are better if they can be fitted. Less undesirable angles going up and down. The piston pushes more straight down on the crank, and less sideways.
                          Much more important, the piston hangs out around TDC for a little longer as the crank swings. This really helps breathing. The overlap period is crucial and longer rods extend it. This is the real advantage to longer rods.
                          I know I'm making this simpler than it really is. One of the techno experts can make this more accurate and easier to understand than I just did.

                          Is 5.118" the correct length for hawk rods?

                            5.118 is the correct length.
