Those are them' ...! Now resize them and use wave loc ARP bolts. If going in mine I would polish the beams have them shot peened and balanced. Tom

Those look Exactly like my 200 I-6 rods.... I too had the oval headed rod bolts... But my part #'s are C-1 "something something"

When my Gecko is broken, does that mean I have 'A REPTILE' Dysfunction?

The D6 indicates that the part was either designed or revised in 76 and since you couldn't get a W in a truck until 83 they don't have the D6TE # that your expecting. The term "truck rods" pertains to their wide spread use in the F series and has nothing to do with the casting #.

Kinda the same way the 87-95 stang used E7TE heads on a car engine.
