IDing Eagle con. rods

Hi, not sure if this belongs in this forum, but seems the most applicable.


My question is, are all Eagle rods stamped with their logo along the length of the rod? Would that be a fool-proof way to ID real Eagles from frauds? Im curious because I purchased a set off Ebay and it has no logo of any kind on it, just the rod length stamped into it. The auctioneer's company advertises that they are a certified Eagle distributor, so I'm a little confused.

I looked up pictures of authentic Eagles to compare, and to the eye they are identical, but on some pictures there is a logo, some not.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

rods

Every eagle "H" beam rod i have ever used has had the logo on them... But i seam to remember the real early ones did not....

Don't get to over up-set if they are scat rods i have used a bunch of them and never had any problems...... I would however worry if they are CAT rods...

can you post a picture of them....

Also on the side of the rod at the split line of the cap there should be numbers, post them

no camera, but there are numbers....

549 above and below the split, another rod has 644 above / below. I havent look at each rod, those are the only two out of package.


also, on the opposite side of the rod, on the cap side of the split, ALL rods have the letters MZ, or ZW (depending on how you look at it) MZ if the pin hole is up.

Other than that there is no identification on these rods. I will add, that they did come in an Eagle box, with Eagle instructions, but Im sure that is not difficult to get. I, for example, could put a set of stock rods in this box now and send them out as Eagles on Ebay, so I take that Eagle box with a grain of salt.

Look at the hollowed out portion of the side (beam) of the the rod. Eagle rods will have a ridge in the middle of the hollowed out part.

There is a ridge leading from where the cap bolt ends, all the way up the inside of the 'H' to the oil holes for the pin. One oil hole on each side.

There is also a similar ridge running along the curved bottom of the cap, between the bolt heads.

I would bet a couple of donuts (and I LIKE donuts) that they are Eagle rods.

rods

Most brand name rods come as a matched set as far as weight and come with a sheet with this info.I have a friend who bought ebay rods that were said to be scats, we called scat he said to check weights and they may be rejects They were so far off they couldn't be balanced. Call eagle.
