I agree, but it does seem some of the "brands" have better quality control than others. Lets not forget some of this stuff is coming from India to.Barry_R said:Not really a scolding - but China is a very big place with more than one forging manufacturer.
It is evident on inspecting other cast and steel imported cranks that there are more than a single source - its too soon to say whether Scat's forged parts are from a different place yet or not since they are not shipping any of them yet... The fact that they are six months behind the off branded parts in hitting the market make me question the "same source" thought on these - - but maybe they're just that late...???
Old thread, I know.ford632 said:I received the 4.500 forged crank today and took in to the machine shop. After having my friend/machinist check over journal sizes, stroke and straightness, he gave it the nod. He also said if they all check out like this one did. It might not be a bad idea to pick up a couple more. I will post what happens when we move to balancing in a couple weeks. Thanks Jim
