It’s very big money to convert the early pierce eight rods to inserts. It can be done, but the rods must be welded, ground, machined, and balanced. Figure 250 a hole or more. If late model rods are used, and I am not sure if they fit, you can have them machined for inserts and the bearing for around 150 each. Babbitt will run around 125 last time I priced it. Call John Cislak and he can tell you about it. He converted Bob Dluhy’s 31 to inserts. He also is set up to do the late style rods on an exchange basis. His number is 413-543-9017
