Big Block Ford 429 and 460 Connecting Rods

Molnar Technologies Connecting Rods

Molnar Technologies H Beam BBF rods are machined from billet 4340 steel, and then heat treated to provide improved strength. To make the rods even stronger, they are shot peened to which also increases fatigue life. All Molnar BBF connecting rods are fitted with highly durable premium bronze bushings for use with floating pin type pistons. Each rod set for the big block Ford 429 and 460 engines includes ARP2000 fasteners, lubricant and installation guidelines.

These rods are also an excellent choice for use in big block Ford stroker engines. They are designed to work with the popular 2.200 rod journal size which is what most all aftermarket stroker cranks use and the wrist pin size is .990 to match the majority of aftermarket performance and racing pistons. They can not be used as a direct replacement for the stock rods as the stock crank and pistons use different journal and pin sizes.

All Molnar Ford 429 and 460 connecting rods are finished in the United States at the Molnar Technologies shop in Michigan. Critical rod dimensions are are held to very precise tolerances of +/- .0001 of an inch, which is the tightest tolerance you will find in the performance and racing aftermarket.
