Where exactly does the block need notched when using Eagle rods? Does the crank girdle also need notched? Are there any aftremarket D rods that dont requite the block to be notched?

the bottom of the sleeve needs to be notched to clear the rod

if your Eagles have the larger rodbolts, the girdle will need to be nothced as well

Here's how I notched mine. Didn't see any reason to hog out everything in the middle.

Notice how the corners of the reliefs are tapered back to the original lower edge of the cylinder. You do not want square edges in these areas, as stress risers could develop.

I had to grind the girdle on my A6 to clear both the large and small bolt eagle rods. Neither one would work.
