  • A Model B Crankshaft, Maybe Not

    Just saw this listed on ebay, but I'd guess it's an early V8 crankshaft.

        Mitch, is Tom looking for a crank ? I got two engines with my truck, the original and a extra 5 bearing cam, w/new style crank, .010 pistons, painted a nice green. I would give the guy, that helped me build the original motor, the extra one. Plus a Delcolight Plant, that I believe I gave someone already ? Memory is fading fast ;) Thanks, Pat
        Model A's and of course the famous AA's

            I don't need a crank, but just noticed this one on ebay.
            The crank throws appear to be 90 degrees apart, which means a V8 or someone made a 4 cylinder into an uneven fire.

              I think you are right it looks like a early V8. Does this mean I will not be the only one with a uneven fire engine.

                  1933 v8 Crankshaft/Rod Bearing "Oversized"
                  by ClaudeC
                  I noticed when looking to purchase replacement bearing that they list standard size plus additional oversized sized. Why are there oversized sizes, Is this to do with the original block size variations?

                  Model A Counterbalanced Crankshaft
                  by Bud_D
                  I know vendors today manufacture counterbalanced crankshafts for Model A's (SCAT & Burlington). I also know that many vendors today modify non-balanced cranks into balanced cranks by welding on weights, straightening the cranks and regrinding.
                  I also know of the Model B cranks with integral counterweights, plus the BB cranks with swedged-on counterweights. I also know that some have taken...

                  B crank in A block
                  by Greynomad
                  I am looking to build a strong, smooth running touring motor preferably without having to spend the big $ to buy a new crankshaft (about $3,500 by the time it is here) and I've have heard of people grafting a counterbalanced B crankshaft into an A block but I haven't seen any details on it. Has anybody out there done it or know anything about it? I have a crank and rods ready for it.
                  I see a...

                  Proper Crankshaft Storage
                  by Mitch
                  There are lots of opinions about the proper way to store a crankshaft. Laying it down vs standing it upright. Some say that laying it down can lead to it bending over time. Others say it does not matter either way is fine. I have seen them shipped with the mains supported at times. So which is it? Your comments are welcome and the poll is not public. (That means your name will not show how you vo...

                  Crank Pully one more time
                  by carolinamudwalker
                  I am dyslectic so i am a little slow to learn. Everyone says the crank pully must stand proud of the crank shaft. Makes sense until I look closely at the crank nut. It has a male taper at the base of the threads and the crank has a matching female taper. To me this is the intended locking mechanism. If so, the pully cannot stand proud very much or you defeat this conical mating surface. Am...

                  B engine crankshaft and insert bearings
                  by Greynomad
                  I am reaching out to members in the US because it is a very different market over there with stuff available that would be very difficult or impossible to find here. First, some background:
                  One of my cars has a B engine fitted which runs beautifully. It is my favourite and I think the counterweighted crankshaft is a large part of that. The bearings have inserts. I do not see inserts listed for...

                  Counterweighted and Turned B crank with Inserts
                  by Tom Wesenberg
                  This could be a good deal for someone building an engine with a modification for a stronger and counterweighted crank.

                  motor balancing attempt with pics
                  by Tom Bellfoy
                  First of all this was not my attempt
                  What can you knowledgable Model A guys tell me about this attempt to balance this A motor ?
                  here are the facts:
                  - The motor has only about 5 hours on it after rebuild and balanced.
                  - no matter the positioning of the flywheel in relation to the pressure plate it would shake the fillings out of your teeth.
                  - using a fairly accurate kitchen...

                  Understanding Crankshaft Balance and Counterweights
                  by Tom Wesenberg
                  Several people have a hard time understanding static and dynamic balance, and the need for counterweights.
                  Jack up the front wheel on your Model A, and if it's in perfect static balance, it will stay wherever you rotate it and remove your hand. Now place a 6 ounce weight on the outside of the rim, and it will sink to the bottom because it's out of static balance. Now place a 6 ounce weight exactly...

                  Was this crankshaft balanced?
                  by old31
                  I paid good money to have the crank balanced. From looking at these pictures can you tell if it was balanced?

                  I recently took off the oil pan, but I can not tell.

                  Also, on the last pic there are some numbers on the bottom, do they mean anything?...
