Continental Rod Bolts A, C, O Series Engines

Post by tom kreiner »

If you're rebuilding your A-65 thru IO-240 or 360, and you're going to spend some $2500+ for new parts, I'll bet you want to build it right.

So, let's do a little math... Engine life of 2000 hrs. x 2100 rpm (avg.) x 60 min. per hour = 252 MILLION stress cycles! Along with Connecting Rods, these are the most highly stressed parts inside your engine. Also the closest to the fatigue limit, meaning eventual failure...

My supply of these is running very low, and we'll probably never see this deal again. AT ACS, these are $19. each, but we're selling them to the Piet and Cub groups for $12.50 each.

Replacing all 8 for $100. (4 Cylinder engine), these are the least expensive part of your rebuild. 12 bolts for a 6 cylinder engine will cost $150.00 Specify whether you want a set of 8 or a set of 12, and I'll adjust cost accordingly. Contact me via text at 832-326-2970 with questions.
