There are two kinds of common bearing tangs on the connecting rods , which shown in our Custom Rods Specification Sheet ( Picture as below ) ,we usually called it as T1 and T2.

When developing a new rod model or for custom rods , we will require sample or full drawing, or the full specs same with our Custom Rods Specification Sheet. So when you have to fill the full specs in our Custom Rods Specification Sheet, to ensure we can understand each other easily on bearing tangs , please follow the steps as below :

1st step : Putting the rods in your hand , small end up, big end down

2nd step : Facing to the bearing tangs where you can see the bearing tangs position clearly .

T1 : 


Note : Most of BMW connecting rods and Nissan connecting rods use T1 bearing tangs, such as BMW M20 135mm Rods , BMW M20 130mm Rods , BMW M20 140mm Rods, BMW M30B35 135mm RodsBMW M3S54 139mm RodsBMW M3 3.0L 142mm Rods , Nissan RB30 152.4mm Rods , Nissan RB25/26 121.49mm Rods etc .
