WR parts

I recently purchased a few 45" parts and one set of flywheels are a bunch different than the others and the rods have lightened by drilling the beam. Could they be WR? I'm hoping that someone can ID them and they would be for sale. Jerry

It sounds like KR rods, the only sets I,ve seen were in Leonard Andres collection, and he emphatically stated Don't you do that to your rods.

To Don: The flywheels are definitely a 45" application. The pinion shaft has the remains of a double row ball bearing on it. The sprocket shaft is tapered and at the end of the taper is a shoulder and then there is a ball bearing on it. The rods I will have to check a little closer, but the crankpin end appears a little beefier than on an ordinary WL rod. The flywheels have a thinner "lip" around the outer edge when compared to a stock WL and appear to have a better finish. Jerry
