The A90 Tie Bar is suitable for twin engine applications with twin Uflex UC128-OBF (<300 HP) or UC128-SVS (>300 HP) front mount cylinders. (NOTE: In applications with a single cylinder, or under 500 combined horsepower, use the A94 tie bar; see Related Products, below.)
The A90 Tie Rod has a threaded bar inside a sleeve, and is adjustable for engine centers from 26" (660mm) to 37.4" (950mm). This is the most popular version of the A90.

• Allows the engines to be tilted independently
• Stainless steel components
• Electropolished stainless steel ball joints
ATTENTION: As the tiller arm position varies from engine to engine and the distance between two engines is not predictable, unexpected interferences may occur while tilting.
We recommend that, after the tie bar installation, you carefully check for binding when both engines are tilted, or when one is tilted but the other is not (say, in the case of one engine breaking down.
