wow, that crank will make for snappy acceleration with the flywheel machined down like that!

Polishing to improve dropping of oil and reduce churning loss, okay. But why would anyone chrome a crank? Journals built up by hard-chromeing maybe?

Chrome doesn't bring you home  *lol*

Hi All,
Have a look at the alloy head he is also selling  ????
Neat conversion *ex*
Its up to $600 with 2 days to go  *eek*

I wonder is that crank actually chromed or is it just mirror polished??
If Carillo rods were fitted it would account for the large amount removed near the crankpins???????

It's a '54 head like the one on my cafe. I had inlet adapters like those but found the carbs were too close and a bugger to seal. I made longer manifolds (1 1/2") to give a bit more bottom end.
