D9TE and 4.5 stroke

Do any of the readily available internally balanced 4.5" strokers fit in a D9TE block without clearancing?

If so which ones?

The Scat and Eagle cranks fit great.

All of them.

They're all modeled after the 3Y crank's dimensions, so they'll fit in any of the production blocks.

I didn't mention the plethora of other offerings because we have no direct experience with them.

Glad to help...

The cranks all fit without a problem however, some clearancing MAY be necessary, depending upon which rod is used.

NOW ... with your 4.500" stroke crank, put in a less expensive production type, steel rod using a 2.200" bearing with "through bolts" and every rod big end will contact the bottom of a bore.
