    Because they can be bought in different sizes depending on whether maching has been done or needs to be done. The oem size is 8mm.

    They will work. Just have a machine shop press them on for you.

    The rod bolts have to be "pressed" on, so to speak. Just bring the parts to a machine shop, they will know what to do.
