354 Connecting Rods



I am putting together the 354 for my 57 Coronet and I have two sets of rods, forging numbers 1324222 and 1821345. Assuming both sets pass inspection, is one set preferable over the other? Dave

Dave:
According to the "Hemi Engine Data Book" the 222 rod was used in short Chrysler including the 300 series. The 345 rod was in trucks. Either, rebuilt, should make a good choice. Have fun, Bob

Thanks Bob. The engine is a D501 354. Would that have used the truck rods? My notes from when I disassembled the engine indicate the 345 rods were the ones in it originally. The motor had not been apart before I got it. Dave
