W-series Connecting Rod Differences

Connecting Rod:

The modified connecting rod has been increased in weight, along with an increase in small end internal bore. It can be identified by a "W" stamped in the side of the rod shaft as shown in illustration. NOTE: A "W" connecting rod requires a "W" piston, new style wrist pin, and modified crankshaft.
