wanted to buy... uh... free ?
Wanted to loan (preferred).

I need a 1.6 or 1.8l rod... I have those generic ebay forged rods enroute... and want to do comparison measurements and such. I can't do this without a rod to compare with...

Anyone have some sitting around to send me?

do they have to be straight? :gay:
I may have a rod with a burnt bearing surface- will that do? If so, PM your address.

I think that would, it shouldn't affect that specific measurement too much. Bent might cause issues

I believe m2cupcar is going to send one my way. I'll let you know if anything changes. Hopefully measurements of this ebay rod turn out... and I can get it checked by a machine shop. Would be a nice cheap rod for us to use.

might want to get some statistical data from the spare rods to verify tolerances too.
