    I have an '87 JDM ZC engine that's going in an '88 Civic, I am donig a full rebuild of this engine and I bought some Eagle H-beam rods, part #CRS5394H3D, these are for the ZC, or so I was told, and I put them in and tightened one down on the crank, but when I tried to rotate the crank the rod hit the side of the cylinder wall. It's like the rods is too thick so there isn't enough room to clear the wall when the piston is coming down or going up. I don't know if I have the wrong rods, or what. Also, does anybody else know of any other rods that are made for the ZC. How about somebody who has aftermarked rods in a ZC, what do you have or did you have to modify anything?

    Any help would be great. Thanks.
