I got to looking at my rebuilt engine from a major farm supplier and noticed that one of the pistons didn't raise up to flush with the top of the block. An inspection revealed 3 "fat" rods and one "skinny" rod. The skinny rod was shorter than the fat ones. Why are there different rods?

Glen, i cant tell you why. I can tell you that one light rod will throw the motor out of balance. Also 1 short rod will give less compression on that cylinder and again, out of balance. I would contact the dealer immediately and tell him your concern. If you proceed you are in for a lot of problems in the future.

Sounds like they ran out of rods and they substituted one from another engine. Someone's got good quality control there(yeah, right).

Well, I took one piston/rod setup from the 3 "good" holes and compared that with the suspect set. I machined a pin to clamp the rod big end to and compared the center lengths of the rods and the piston heights from the wrist pin center. The results proved that the cause of the problem was the short rod. Lesson- boys, if you want the job done right, do it yourself!
