A GOOD day at the junkyard!

What better way to spend a sunday afternoon Than pulling 429's out of propane trucks and gutting them?

3 good blocks and 4 steel cranks so far with five more trucks to kill.

Cool

Of the three commercial truck cranks in the picture, the crankshaft on the right is a factory induction-hardened crankshaft.

Nice score.

Thanks for the information. How do you tell the difference? They all look the same to me.

They are all D9TE-AB blocks. I am told The bore extends deeper in the block and are better suited for stroking.

see how the surface of the crank has kind of a bluish tint to it on the counterweights? thats what hardening does. i used to work at a shop that induction hardened parts for artic cat and bobcat.

just another dual quad 545 :-)
