It seems the rod from the Adam Drake is the same rod.

Rb normally have just a .002" or so larger crank pin size. There were some that had the std. Nova size in the last few years though. Roelof is correct, I have worked on Drake engines and they also have the larger crank pin like a Rb so that rod whould work great. I have also reamed out a used Nova rod to fit in a pinch.
