Connecting rod bolts for a 1.3L?

Does anyone know where I can get some rod bolts for a 1.3L? The dealer is no help, says I have to buy the whole rod. No thanks! Someone here must have rebuilt the rods on an engine rebuild, right? Thanks for any and all help,

Re: Connecting rod bolts for a 1.3L?

As far as I could find, no one makes aftermarket bolts. I talked to ARP, they said the size of the stock ones were more than adequate.

Re: Connecting rod bolts for a 1.3L?

((ASAIN AUTO PARTS)) I thought it was Asian instead of Asain....lol

that's cool I get it wrong sometimes too....it is a goofy name, should I change it?

I rebuild a few Jeep motors and put one of our windshield stickers on my son's Jeep (with our rebuilt Jeep motor in it) and the Union guys he works with want to throw a rock through it....not good!
He told them how much money he saved, and they changed their minds....they knew it would have cost them 3 times the money at any Jeep repair shop..LOL

stock rod bolts from a 1324 are plenty strong enough, like my Amigo sarge stated.....thanks sarge

Dave

if it goes fast now, I can make it go faster

Re: Connecting rod bolts for a 1.3L?

Great, atock rod bolts are good enough, but where can I get some? Like I said, the dealer is no help, and all the machine shops around here can't help. So where do I look? Dave?

Joe,
Dave should have some used rod bolts laying around, if he don't tell him to bend over and cough. LOL. Brent or Hawk's might have some, too. Just make sure they are out of the same engine. Hawk's does have recond. rods, also. Have fun,

Joe,
If Dave or any of the other guys don't have any drop me an e-mail. I have a pile (literally) of connecting rod bolts. How many do you need?

Re: Connecting rod bolts for a 1.3L?

I guess I didn't make myself clear in my original post. I am looking for NEW connecting rod bolts(and nuts). I already have used ones, they're still in the rods. I am looking at polishing the beams, and having the rods resized before I put this thing together. So, if anybody knows where I can get some new rod bolts, I would appreciate the info. Thanks,
