Thanks for the response. I’m not sure if you have these rods or were helping me identify them. In any event,I have contacted the contractor to find out if the 1 5/16″ diameter
hex will fit.I also gave him a link to this website.
Thank you very much for your help. I am a 25 year hydraulics and pneumatic guy that just went to work in the steam specialty business,(ES Constant in Portland Oregon), so I am
still on a steep learning curve. I have been to a number of great schools and will be going out in the field soon. Most of it makes sense to me but it’s challenging to be a 57 yesr old “newbie”.
