Comments

  1. Do you have a 6.635 big block chevy rod in 2.1 rod journal?

    • molnarrods says:

      Hello Jon,

      At this time the only BBC rods we have that use the 2.100 rod journal are 6.135 and 6.385 long.

      Thank you for asking.

  2. Matt Wicht says:

    For your BBC 2.1 rod journal, are you just using a standard SBC large journal bearing or do you have to purchase a wider bearing and if so where are they purchased from? Thanks.

    • molnarrods says:

      Hello Matt,

      Thank you for visiting our site and taking the time to ask your question.

      Those rods take a standard 2.100 small block chevy journal size bearing. They do not require a special bearing.

      So for example you can use a Clevite CB-663H or any equivalent part number bearing.
