Eagle stroker cranks

Just sharing my learning curve with you all - if you buy a Forged Steel stroker crank for the 5.0 it is internally ballanced. This means it should be smoother and has less harmonics but what it does mean is that 50oz counterweighted SFI approved flexplate and harmonic ballancer I just purchased become paperweights. I had Peter Michaels doing my ballancing and he rang me up and gave me the good news . Then asked me if I could get him neutral ballanced ones tommorrow so he didn't have to take the crank out of the ballancer
Oh well - you learn by your mistakes they say...

2. If you throw it up in the air and it comes down - It's too heavy...

Squeezed is nice, stroked is good, blown is unbeliveable - but all 3 is heaven

Re: Eagle stroker cranks

You must have accidently bought an internally balanced crank, which are relatively new. The vast majority are 28 ounce...

Re: Eagle stroker cranks

Yeah - we reused the TCI 50oz flexplate by machining off the conterballance weight and getting it back to neutral ballance - I have had to order another ballancer from Romac and airbagged it over. Believe it or not - the freight company had their truck break down so the overnight delivery has turned into over 2 nights delivery .
So much for the extra of airfreight.
