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.

Nice, I am looking for one of the cranks for a different build.

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.


Is there any differnce in the blocks? What are the casting numbers of the block?
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.
