Engine 289 connecting rod

  1. I was taking apart my '66 289 and noticed that the connecting rods don't have oil holes in them but the bearings have holes. Found this a bit odd, is it normal?

    Thanks and Merry Christmas
  2. 65 had oiler holes ,66 up did not. but all the bearings do
  3. The 260 and 289 High Performance had oil squirters, but the Mustang 289 did not.
  4. every 65 289 i have ever taken apart had oiler rods 2v and 4 v, just took apart at 2v 289 it had oilers.
  5. Got pix?

  7. the rods have part -C3AE ,the oiler hole is at the top of the bearing and exits at the base of the I beam. this one is from a 2 V 1965 289 IMG_2481.JPG IMG_2482.JPG IMG_2483.JPG
