Re: forged rods

well when i was kinda lookin at my motor cause im getting ready to put it back together well i notices that the old connecting rods are bevled at the end were they connnect to the piston so the could move to find center and i looked at my forged ones and they are not beveled but just have alittle less movement on the piston what in tryin to figure out is if i need to bevle the rod so it fitts like the stock one was or if itll be fine

thank you justin
