If you are trying to find out if it is 6" or 5.7" etc. you can measure the distance between the large end hole and the small end hole, then add 1/2 the diameter of the large hole and 1/2 the diameter of the small hole, this will give you the rod length.

Or take the cap off, stand the rod upright on a table, and measure how high off the table the center of the small hole is. Unless the motor's still together. If it's a factory stock 350, they are 5.7". If it's been hotrodded before, it's anybody's guess as to rod length or even displacement.
