    Different manufacturers use different length connection rods and different height pistons to obtain proper compression ratios. These engines are made in 3 different factories and the internals are different between all 3, and sometimes even different parts are used in mid year production.

    The best way to almost guarantee matching parts is to know the vendor that sold the engine originally, and what factory made the engine.

    Grubee/ Skyhawk.
    Flying Horse.
    Those are the manufacturers, I think Jet is in cahoots with Raw, but I am not positive.

    I think that Kings deals with all of them.
