large journal rod

Hi guys,

A little triva for you Chevy guys. Ever seen a large journal (as in a 350 for example) rod with 11/32 rod bolts?

Thanks
Jeff

Hi,

I just found 7 of these rods yesterday buried in the shop, I had kinda forgot about these rare items. This rod has a dipple like the high perf rat rods and uses 11/32 bolts. To the best of my knowledge all 1967 350 295 hp Camaro engines used these. I have worked on several of these engines (still have 1) all had this type rod with a steel crank. The block is unique also it is the only large journal main (350 size) that used a cannister oil filter, and had a vent (pcv) port cast into the rear of the block like a 327, only larger mains. Not real important info but kinda neat.

Thanks
Jeff

Ps
I think only the vehicle to use the 350 in 67 was the Camaro. Spmething else a little strange- anyone seen an early Chevy II block?
