I am having problems trying to source the standard A+ conrod bolts CAM6126. I have removed the piston and rod assemblies from the block and have read that it is best to replace the bolts when rebuilding the engine. Is this really necessary?
Ideally I would have replaced them with new stock bolts which wouldn't break the bank but replacing them with the ARP equivalent is out of my budget!
Anyone been faced with this problem in the past?
Thanks for the help *smiley*

I have reused bolts for a standard build, if you couldn't find the standard A+ you could use 12.9 Allen cap bolts 3/8 UNF.

Thanks for the suggestion! Just found this...

Here 12.9 cap head bolts have been used but I would want to use high tensile washers. Will have to see what I can find...

I've reused the standard bolts several times on turbo builds. I've used ARP for high revving engines.

I suggest that you check that they torque up OK. You soon feel through the torque wrench if all is not well.

Ah good to know Paul! In which case reusing them is also an option. I found one retailer where I could order the standard bolts and I placed an order but I am not holding out much hope.

Just come across these which seem quite promising...

General dimensions seem correct but need to check thread length, head diameter etc...
