Has anyone run a crank that was out of true by up to 4 to 6 thousandths off? I have a +4 Hot Rod long rod crank in my cheetah that we can't get true because it is welded.


Are the Hot rod cranks garbage?

Anyone try using the services of Crankworks in Phx?

thanks,

Mailman

I had one guy try and straighten his with a trailer hitch out at the beach...lol

.008 is the max tolerance on a stock crank. A race crank you want within .002 IMO and optimal is .0005

My 10 mil was a used crank works, put a TZ bearing on PTO side over two years ago...and it was trued to .001.
hundreds and hundreds of runs later, no issues.
I'll check it again before I put mine back together...but my money says it's the same or within .0001 to .0005 of what it was before.

A trail crank that only sees 9 K here and there .004 to .006 is OK....
I agree with sonny...race crank, Max RPMs most of the time, .002 or less is what to shoot for.
