Any value in 198’s?

Agreed. I brought this up since I got a set of each type pistons (TRW forged), with rings. Got one set for free, and one set with a bunch of other parts for $100.00
Then had a machine shop screw up 2 sets of 198 rods. One set are junk, the other set were able to be salvaged by a different shop.
Dang, that's too bad.
