The industrial 429 rod? Pretty sure there's somebody selling them on ebay all the time.

I have a reconditioned set. The rods have been cleaned, magnaflux inspected, the big ends resized with new bolts and nuts. If you're interested, give me a call. I return calls.

CR 370 rods for med. duty trucks??? Ill Look but I think there different THANKS
Eagle CR 370 are aftermarket replacements. They have not been made in many years. They are correct for your 429HD. Sounds like a few guys here have what you need too. MD/HD rods are shorter at 6.358" or there a bouts...

You are correct on the length (6.357"). It is becoming increasingly difficult to find good rods. I ended up with this set by error. There are two different "truck rods".
