    FORGED CRANKS FOR AMC V8 (info, specs, ideas, feedback here)

    As some of you may know we started discussing a new forged crank (stroker and stock replacement) over 10 years ago. At the time we had alot of interest and folks ready to buck down some coin for a stroker forged crank. The idea was to make strokes and rod pin sizes in various sizes. Enough to satisfy the 95% of all AMC/Jeep folks out there. The investment was heavy and the markets were shaky. We invested in capital equipment we got a pair of vertical machining centers with 60"s of travel to add to our equipment to cover all the new ideas that would come and in our own brand of oil AMC-HD (5 years ahead of the ZDDP scare). This put the crankshaft forging out for at least 5 years. Time went on and business kept creeping up every month, every year...new equipment, new ideas, selling and trading equipment to get what we needed put the idea out even further. We built a new building and added a 10 foot bed CNC machining center and are about to add a bridge mill for new ideas. Now we are in a great position, stronger than ever we are ready to make the transition to being the first in the world to offer a forged replacment crankshaft for the AMC V8. We are looking at the forged crankshaft idea once again.


    I/we would absolutely LOVE your input. Please get into our forum and tell us what you want to see, if your ready for a new forged crank or any other opinion. We have a new server and emails are working 100% so please come here and speak up.

    Thank you so much!

    There may be a chance to get a pre-order discount as well.

    Wow that"s great, I don't need a new one yet but it's nice to see them become available.

    Awesome! 4 inch stroke 2.1 chevy pin for a .940 ls style rod would be great

    At 4" the journal overlap becomes miniscule. A 4" crank should have a huge corner radius like a 5/32 radii. This is argumentally the best case scenario. Rod clearancing and rod bearing clearancing should be done. After going down that road a ton of times I can say you can make GREAT power with a 4" stroke but it needs to be done right. Getting folks to understand a 5/32" radii instead of a 1/8" radii is tough.

    I know I'm in a VERY small group, but what are the possibilities of being able to get a really short stroke? 2.906...... or 3.00? Vintage racing IS growing. If the one I have saws itself in half, I'd like to not spend years searching for another; or a couple.... Thoughts? Thanks, Ken
