Came across this picture of a locking rod nut from another site:
Here's another style:
Which style would you recommend?
If I remember right, mine were just regular nuts. I don't recall any locking features. There were the ones that were on there when I removed them to do the rebuild. I'll double-check, since the underneath side of the crankcase is still open. Now that you mention it, IIRC, there were a couple connecting rod nuts that were very easy to back off when disassembling.
