Cosworth Rods For Twin Cam Engines

PostPost by: SJ Lambert » Fri Jan 27, 2012 12:18 pm

Our Cosworth Mk XVI Twin Cam engine has these Cosworth rods in it, unsurprisingly!! I don't suppose they are called "K" rods??

Were there any other types of Cosworth rod offered in the "Wide Pin" (Rope Seal) era??

Here's a period shot of a similar engine, looks very much like a Laystall crank and Cosworth Steel Caps on display, circa 1965 or thereabouts.
