i know there has been a few guys who have built stroker sbc<s with production blocks and a 4" stroke , they used steelrods , i sure wouldn,t want to try and use a aluminum rod you,d be notching thru the panrails on the block pretty much , also you would have to run a very smallbase circle cam to clear that much stroke with aluminum rods

You can gain clearance by using a small journal 2" rod. Avoid anything bigger than 3.875, gets to be a real pain.

Offset grind a 3.750 arm and run small honda rod journals. should fit everything nicely.

Not really. Pick up a used eagle or GM forged stroker. Grab a set of lentz nascar etc rods off of ebay.

couple of $$ at the grinders and you have a nice light 4 inch arm that clear most everything.




seems like alot of work for a production block IMO
