Default Superior SL-11750 Connecting rods

Hi All,
Unfortunately had to overhaul the engine in our RV10. Sent everything out for inspection but ended up with 2 failed connecting rods.

I am reaching out see if anyone has a couple of serviceable rods laying around they would be willing to sell?

Thanks,
Jason

Not Superior, but AEL 11750 may be available through JJAirparts.com.

Thank you Robert, I reached out to JJAirparts and a few other vendors with no luck, unfortunately both Superior and AEL are out of stock at the factory. A couple vendors stated they have not seen these rods in over a year!




lr172 , Bummer I should have reached out earlier, already purchased the rod bolts and nuts. Thank you anyway!

2 out of the 6 rods failed for pitting on the beams and tail ends.

I actually just found a set of six that should be getting delivered today. I will be selling the 4 remaining rods that past inspection with 8130 forms. They are the same rods used in a Lycoming 360.
