That'd be for the LD28 crank wouldn't it?

Very. And you wouldn't bother.

FJ20 rods are similar length, and you can buy H-beam versions from MaxSpeeding.

How hard is it to find L14 Rods?

 

I have 12... but they are almost impossible to find now...

How long are FJ20 rods?

140mm. Little end is 22mm rather than 21mm for L-series.

 

And if you're really lucky, you may find a seller that will accept an epic lowball offer.......

LOL Dave! I bet you were surprised when they excepted!

I hope the quality was OK...?

 

FWIW the gudgeon pin size isn't an issue, as you'd just have the forged pistons made to suit.

Surprised and then concerned that they were either dodgy rods or a dodgy seller.

 

When they arrived, they turned out to be Maxspeeding rods, look quite good, weigh within half a gram of each other.

 

And yep, they'll be teamed with custom pistons for a KA24DE headed L18 (or maybe L20)

I've tried FJ20 rods, they're too long which places the piston pin too high (good luck finding a piston that works) & too chunky around the journals, the block needs to be recessed quite a bit to allow the crank to turn.

Pistons are pretty cheap to get made to what you require.

 

When the last freshen up was done on my race motor, I needed new pistons as 4 out of the six had smashed ringlands. The pistons were Mitsubishi and NLA. Was surprised at the cost of getting new ones made the same from JP Pistons in Adelaide, much cheaper than I though they would be.
