Looking for Aluminum block and 5.25" crank

Post  gordyd4 on January 22nd 2013, 7:43 pm

Looking for 11.200", or 11.700" Preferred, deck wet block. A/R, C&C, or old Ford Motorsports. 4.900" bore space only, no 5.0 bore space. If it needs sleeves, or other work Ok. Pm me with block info and price.
Also, looking for 5.200" to 5.300" crank.

My last car had an all aluminum 604, and after I bought the C-heads I was regretting I did not get the Hemi heads.
I was kinda all over the board with what I was going to build now, and decided this motor is gonna be 700 CID Hemi. Not sure what I'm gonna put it in. Was thinking about building a 67 Shelby from TM race cars, but I keep coming back to a 69 Mustang because it would have some nostalgic flavor with the big Boss engine.

Winberg may have a crank in stock. Of course it will be a new billet. When I talked to them yesterday they said they had a few 5" plus cranks in the works.

I'd be real suspicious of a used one, the overlap of journals on these cranks is negligable, and therefore the cranks tend to have cracks appear between the journals in the counter weights. As far as finding a new one for used price, that might be possible, but not probable. You probably should just buy new and know what you have for sure. Sounds like a heck of a beast if you get it together. Cool

You make a good point; I'm not in a hurry for parts, so maybe something will surface that's worth buying. I would surely have a used crank checked out.
