Default Re: SnyderÂ’s Inserted Rod Size?

Thanks for the info.
More thoughts:
Using AER or Scat bearings a thrust face must be built up.
Snyder claims their bearings (pictured) have front and rear thrust faces. The 1.580 would not allow enough for the shell. Something doesn't make sense.
So the rod bore is the same as an AER rod. AER bearings are .082 thick. Snyders bearings should be the same thickness and the thrust side should carry the same thickness.
Close as i can tell Fords rods were finished to a 1.615 width
A stock rod with the babbitt removed is about 1.55 wide. Needing about .10 removed to allow for the insert. But this is speculation.

Still hoping for the full connecting rod spec. before i order a set.
