Hey everyone, wondering if anyone has a good con rod balancing fixture to recommend for professional use. Mostly RB/JZ/3SGTE/SR20 and similar platforms.

No specific recommendations, but check the big (and small?) ends will actually fit the arbour - some may be made for US 'rods and be too big for your rods, or those you intend using. You can have them machined to suit, or new ones made so you still have the original sizes.

Andre - the other one - has posted on this very subject - have a look for it.

The one we have is from Jegs. It's just a generic fixture and nothing particularly special. It definitely works but is a little fiddly to get truly repetitive readings. I haven't tried many others so can't give any further recommendations sorry.
