Default ZAE 50 connecting Rod

Can anyone tell me what name brand motor uses the ZAE 50 rods with the 38 mm stroke?? Is it the Flying Horse ??
Also can I use a GT-5 jug and piston with the ZAE 50 Rod since its a 38 mm stroke??
I hear Fred call them the HALF BREED MOTORS AND THEY ARE WELL BALLANCED FROM THE FACTORY! Is it true?

Dang, Mon.

I did a search and there seems to be a lot of discussion but I don't know which posts/threads would be pertinent to your question.

I thought I posted my answer here before. Maybe it was on fb.
The "ZAE 50" on the casting is the company that makes the rods. All have it with some variations having nothing to do with the rest of the engine. You might find them in ANY 38mm stroke engine, and some 40mm as well. I've never seen any direct link to any information about which engine has what rod.
