FT-240 / FT-300 Connecting Rod
I've heard the bronze connecting rods supplied with early OS FT-240 engines have been known to seize on the crankshaft and basically destroy the engine. This happened to a person who also said there was a steel connecting rod available for the FT-240/300, with bronze bushed ends. When I search for such a part (#46205000), though, the photo is of a solid bronze connecting rod.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Can anyone provide a bit more background? Is this something to be concerned about?
