Crank Pilot Size

What size crank pilot does the 385 series use? I know some cranks have a dual pattern, just wondering what size to get on the converter. It's a 4.500 forged steel crank. Thanks,

Pilot sizes.

1.85, 1.375, and a 1.25 (1.25 was never used with factory converters). Some cranks have both 1.85 and 1.375. I have two cranks with 1.85 and 1.25 in them. Gonna have to measure yours. 1.85 was for early (1970 and before) cranks and 1.375 is for late ones.
