Finally got my new crankshaft!!

Look I got the replacement crank for my motor finally! I've actually had it for awhile just been too busy with other stuff to get busy on this engine. It's a one piece type as opposed to the custom "two-piece" crankshaft I ended up with before!! Exciting!



As opposed to....

Cool deal... Looks like the new one would net you a few more ponies... How'd that happen...? From the looks of the camshaft, it doesn't appear to have too much run time on it...

Just trying to broaden your horizons there

Doug, it only had 6000 miles on it! Eagle claimed that crank would handle 500 hp and 7000 rpm. Don't know why they rate it like that, too many variables for something like that. Anyway, it broke, their customer service sucked and now I'm a scat customer lol...

Larry I sure hope this one holds up, lol, guess we'll find out in the next year or so.

Hey Dave, some of us build Mopars ALSO. Even enter a few of their contests along the way, LOL.

I bet "moparman" would probably love this "SUBLIME" colored 400 based 512" engine here.

Hey Randy, shop I work for was entered in that contest, unfortunately the economy hit us hard enough that we can't afford to go now. Hope you do well, I'm sure I'll read about it later.
