Default I can't find a con rod for my CZ.

The con rod in my CZ recently broke. I bought a 12Z/CV con rod and it doesn't fit properly. It hits the side of the engine because it is wider. I did some searching and I can't find one that is the same shape as the original one.
I've attached a picture comparing the two rods. Does anybody know where I can get one? Thanks in advance.

Default RE: I can't find a con rod for my CZ.

The CZ-series of engines made by O.S. have been discontinued for quite a long time. They no longer make parts for those engines, and they are no longer supported. Any parts that may be available are left-over stock that has never sold since the engines were discontinued. We'd not know where you'd be able to locate parts to repair your engine. Perhaps a search of the internet for dealers who locate parts for the engine collectors' market may help you. Sometimes, those dealers place ads in the back of the model magazines, or place ads in those magazines' classified ad section.
