Yep, preceded the Vette 180 crank. by 1+ years ? Mustang GT 350, in production 4-5+ years ? Anyone have a picture ?
I need a junker. You would be helping the 32 valve RV8, cause.
Thanks, Art.

Thanks guys. How'd they get those holes in the main and rod pins ? Look how big those counter-weights are. Explains how they made it smooth enough. I suspect I can weld on counter-weights, without affecting strength of crank. I want to water jet a "flat plane" crank from 4340 plate. Rough machine , weld counter-weights, heat treat and finish grind. Still less work than a round billet.
