    Jim Rogers,
    I provided the crankshaft for this engine. Rod went with a 2.375" rod journal which added a lot of rotating weight. We had Rod send it back to Crower and they balanced it for a very good price. I the future we need to have a approximate bob wt. then this wouldn't happen. The crank I have for my engine which is from the same forging weighs 65Lbs. I had a bunch of lightening work done. For the folks that have blocks on order, this would be a good time to start getting your cranks on order as well. They will take 12-16 weeks. The blocks should be finished end of July, this is what I was told this morning by the machine shop.

    Any word on how it took the banging of the blower. It was a topic this weekend as to how well it took it. Just figured you would have it apart by now and was hoping for an update.
