I ordered a Hot rod because there is a copper/bronze bushing at the rod end...Also I just repaired one engine with a Prox connecting rod and the lower end bearing was seized, the cause was probably not the rod itself but when the Honda guy's rebuild the engine sometimes ago, they forgot to install the big washer on the crankshaft left bearing, instead they installed it behind the flywheel outside of the crankcase...not a good idea....

I thinl that the big washer keeps the oil trapped against the left bearing ...but not 100% sure about this.
