    If schedules are kept we will have BBB Billet cranks in stock around the end of the year. Fully counterweights, 4.4 stroke, 3.25 mains, 2.2 rods. They should be well under $3000. We have already ordered pistons and rods for stock to accommodate stroker kits and for our iron block. They can be cut for 3” mains and balanced at an additional cost. All other engine parts should also be in stock before the end of the year. Start planning now for your winter builds.

    Just curious Ken oh, how much is the machine going to cost to take the main journals down to 3"? And turning down the road journals?

    For mains around $300. What do you want rods turned down to, they come 2.2. I know some run sbc rod size. You can offset these cranks to destroke. We can have any combination made. Takes 10 of the same at a time.

    So,I could offset ground to a 4.500” stroke,with a SBC journal,if desired?

    Some engine builders use Honda journal sizes. You need a plan for the madness. A proven 4.4 stroke with a 4.5 bore gives 560”. Plenty of cubes for 99.9% of builds. Yes you can but I have no plans for that...yet!

    I have a few cranks with small journal SBC 2.00”,but I haven’t done any with the Honda journal yet.
    I was thinking of taking your crank down to the 2.00” rod journal,with more offset.

    What’s the Projected date for the cylinder heads with water jackets, and a cast intake to match

    JESUPERCAT No Slow Boat

    Tom still waiting for the final info on that. I believe a few changes had been made to things and the design is done, just waiting for the price.
    Ken is working on that and he is back in about 10 days. If I hear more I will let you know.

    So for future reference,..cranks will be either in stock or just a few weeks out,..but not months and months,??

    JESUPERCAT No Slow Boat

    Ken took no deposit money from anyone and bought 15 cranks to make sure he had them for the Buick racers.
    When he gets down to 5 or 6 left he will order more.
    He is also putting together stroker Kits with all parts for a 560 cube combo, that will be in stock.
    His goal is to have a few different engine combos in stock for immediate shipment in the near future.
