: Question about connecting rods?

08-09-04, 09:15 PM
Ive heard that the connecting rods in a 425 caddy are forged and if this is true are they the same length as the rods in a 472-500?

I guess nobody knows!

I've never heard that before. If it was true, I'd assume people would already be doing it. Try asking at either shiftless's board or MTS's.

As far as I know, the Cadillac 425 rods are cast.....the Olds 425 (1965?-1967?) rods are forged though and they're right around 7" long.
