Default 2 good Weisco pistons, 3 good Eagle rods

As the title states.

Is there any interest for this??? These are 84.5mm low comp pistons and Eagle H-Beam rods. If you have another rod and a couple good pistons its an amazing setup.

In the pic the last 2 pistons are the good ones. And I'm sure you can all figure it out, but the last 3 rods are the good ones.

Not sure what its worth, how about $200 shipped to Continental North America. Make me an offer.

100obo, You can buy a rod for about 150 bucks each from eagle and pistons for $150 each from Weisco. Its worth it for the 3 rods alone. I had these checked at a machine shop and they are still good

it was hell.... Clearance too tight when it was assembled (hence the rod), it was tuned poorly as well.

Serious lack of experience....block is toast.... it was a fun few hundred miles though

If I were to guess....yes...

I had my injectors maxed out because they were 3ohm being run on 12ohm. I was running lean when in the high revs... very very expensive mistake (not to self, tune the car myself next time)

So do you guys think that the "good" rods and pistons here were possibly damaged when the rest of the stuff went boom? I'm seriously interested in buying these, I just need to know whether it might mess up the expensive engine build I'm going to put them in.

I know my info isn't relevant here, but I got the Rods checked at a reputable machine shop. Paid them to look at was was left of my block, rods and pistons to see what was salvagable as they are the once assembling everything in my new block.

The pistons are 84.5mm pistons. Honestly... i would get this package along with some Supertech pistons and buy one rod.

This is just my input, everyone else please chime in.

At 200 after you get the new rod, that's not a bad deal at all assuming they all check out.

Throw the slugs in the metal salvage or if you know a hotrodder who smokes, clean them up and give them away as ashtrays.
