Default Maytag 1946 72 twin connecting rods and caps needed

Hi,
My husband decided to tear down and rebuild our 72 twin. Ours developed a loud knocking noise all of a sudden while test running the motor. After tear down and inspection, My husband found that someone had previously replaced the rod screws with socket head cap screws with no lock washers. The SHCS's backed out and tore up the rods and caps. Does anyone have a good set that they would be willing to part with? We do have good pistons and new rings. Please message or email me!

Thanks again everyone!
Stitch

You might try contacting Tom S or Mark Shulaw, the Maytag gurus, here on the Stak. There is also several maytag parts suppliers on Evilbay and on the internet. Check also here on the Stak Sponsor pages. the Maytag bronze rods are not very forgiving. Make sure to use either SAE 30 NON-detergent or a good TCW-3 OIL for lubrication, at the proper ratio - 16:1 1 cup oil to 1 US gallon gas. Use high test gas, to help prevent alky issues and fuel degradation. Hope you can find a good set of rods.
Andrew

Stitch, there's a pair on eBay now with the Pistons. Missing two of the end caps but looks like a good deal for the $.
