Buy one of mine and one from Dax and compare them and my hunch is that they will be identical.
Sounds about right .
Personally I've never taken a connecting rod out of the crank so when it measured longer with the bottom pin hole in the same position on the crank itself i automatically assumed the rod was longer...See what I get for assuming ?? I GET WRONG!!!
It never dawned on me the hole could be drilled closer to the end of the rod !! Thanks you for the heads up bro!
