has anyone ever had to grind down a little bit off of the girld to make eagle rods fit. the reason im asking is because i assembled my bottom end and the rod bolt is hitting it just a little.

seems to be a common problem. just rotate the crank until the rod hits and mark where you need to grind. you should be fine, people have been doing it forever.

yeah i just put the eagle rods in my block and i had it all assembled and i rotated the crank to see if i cleared the cylinder walls for the rods. it turned just a lil bit and then stopped. went back the other way and it stopped again. so i pulled the oil pan off and looked around for a bit and noticed it hitting the girdle. So i just took the girdle off and grinded it down and had to do it 3 or 4 times to give it enough clearence. I wish i would have known about it before i assembled it all the first time.

he did it wrong. You didn't have to notch it like that. All you needed to do was grind away a little on the underside of the girdle. Mine however did not need grinding. Don't know why but it cleared.

It's not done "wrong". You notch the girdle to clear the rod bolts. The girdle clears the bolts, so it's done correctly...accesive, but correct. I didn't notch the girdle. The block was being assembled while I was @ SEMA last year by the machine shop that had the motor. Could they have notched less, positively, will it damage anything notching more...no.
