I agree, we ran an offset ground 460 crank at the 950 hp level for two years with zero issues. 7500-8000 rpm every pass. And you can pick them up used for under $100.

The company is called Ro-Dy machining. I used them several years ago (7-8?) for some basic machining and balancing on a stock crank.. .but their main business appeared to be custom billet cranks. The guy who helped me was Greg Blagus who I think is the owner. He was a good guy to work with and I was happy with the job he did for me. I found his old business card (734) 459-9335. If you're in Plymouth, go in there and talk to Greg. It is amazing to see how they carve a crank out of a chunk of billet.

Ro-dy Crankshaft

Post  boss_bart on February 24th 2011, 12:12 pm

I know this is an older post, but I agree with Asedan. I have used Rody for several crankshafts because he was recommended by Red Johnson, who was the man of contact in the Roush engine build Department in Livonia. This goes back to when the Nascar stuff still came out of Livonia. Red used Greg Blagus for a lot of his crank work and never had an issue from simple grinding / polishing to billets. He is a good guy to deal with, so is Adney...good work by both - take your pick.

Are either of these the post you were talking about?

Ro-dy Crankshaft

Post  boss_bart on February 24th 2011, 1:12 pm

Neither. I was referring to the post about Ro-dy Crankshaft in Plymouth Michigan. But, if it's a choice between Scat and Eagle, go with Scat everytime. Make sure you still have it looked at, but the starting point is a much better product. Of course, the top of the line cranks are the best, such as Crower, Callies, Bryant, but people on a budget (best bang for the buck) can't go wrong with Scat. Just my opinion.

Seeing the kind of hp and rpm that the Scat forged stuff is being used in from guys here, I'd put their cranks up against the other brands any day. Cool

460 crank

Post  Mark Laczo on February 24th 2011, 1:55 pm

Too bad you didn't live closer I would just give you a stock 460 crank, I got quite a few laying around. Maybe you should head to an wreckers and buy a core with all the accessory brackets and such then you will have some spare parts.

This is an OLD thread from when I first joined here man Laughing I got a crank from my machinist, great price already polished up. I found out that he actually goes to RO-DY for all his cranks and crank grinding. So mine was done by RO-DY already, right around the corner from me. My crank is an OEM internal balance 460 crank Cool I feel safe with it for what I'm doing.

Rody Crankshaft

Post  mkopmani on May 25th 2012, 1:59 pm

Rody Crankshaft is the source where Roush was/is getting their Cup billet cranks from. Owner's name is Greg. He used to work for Whitey at Moldex, then branched out on his own. Moldex still nitrides for him. I had a 427 Ford crank done there in 2002/2003 and the work was excellent. I was referred there by Red Johnson at Roush's as Moldex couldn't handle all the volume that Roush needed.
