Re: 6 inch rod 406 on Street
I have run 6.0" rods in the last motors I have built , using light weight pins thru the ring glands. I have done this with bbc and my last sbc motors. The most proven is my 383 with srp pistons on Compstar rods on a Scat Profiled crank. .
They may be a little hard for some guys to accept or install or remove pins, but I have not had issues in the last 30k miles over long Power tour cruises. Yes , there is some unsupported oil rails but the rings have proven themselves.
