    Hi. I am looking for 1960 on H/W single engine conrod lengths. Rods were made by WHT. Unfortunately lengths are not listed in the workshop manual or in F.W. Neil's book.

    010312 Conrod, 350/500 STD, 1950-63
    022397 Conrod, 500CS, 1956-66, 600CS, 1959-62 & 350/500 STD, 1964-66

    For 010312, I believe length is 6-7/8" (174.6mm) - does anyone have a rod to confirm this? Carillo lists a conrod of this length, thus I belive this length to be correct.

    TIA

    I'm not sure what that measurement pertains to but it doesn't line up with anything on the old rods out of my '64 650ss.
    The centre to centre distance on my rods is 149.25mm (small end is 17.43mm and big end (minus shells) is 48.07mm)
    (I replaced them with a set of commando rods)
    Cheers
    Rob

    Hi Rob,

    You are responding to a request in the AJS/M section. This is about genuine AMC engines, not Norton.

    Thanks for responding though.
