Piston rings purpose is to seal the gap between the cylinder wall and piston. Piston rings wear over time and the rings should always be carefully inspected, measured or replaced when rebuilding an engine.
The connecting rods connect the piston to the crankshaft. The primary purpose is to transfer the force from the piston to the crankshaft. The rods work under extreme forces and should always be sent out for professional inspection when rebuilding an engine.
The unique single-rib design of Pauter's forged connecting rods works to create significantly less windage in the engine while retaining immense strength. This design has been proven over many decades of racing in all types of engines. These rods are a fantastic upgrade if you're considering a motor rebuild and are looking for something a little more stout than stock. If you're looking for a custom rod, feel free to give us a call and one of our sales staff can get you set up with exactly what you need!
