    Default Ohio Billet crankshaft for a bbc

    in need of a new crank. Would this crank be a good choice for Blown Alcolhol in a jet boat B44544000. seems like a good price.

    Default ohio cranks

    I looked at some of the other forums seams like alot of people are having good luck with them a few have had some with tapered journals but i think they are like eagle or scat they get the material overseas and do all the machining there. Whats a little funny to me though is on there website they are all about ohio stuff but are selling bill miller rods and a few other different company's parts.

    Ask Mailman what he thought about his Ohio Crankshaft!!! I will admit it took one hell of a beating before it broke

    Kinda depends on what you mean by "blown alcohol". If your talking a low compression/boost application where you're making less than 1000 HP, I've seen guys get chevy steel cranks to live in blown alky applications. If you're running higher compression, good heads, a bunch of boost and leaning on the tune up, I'd put a better crank than an Ohio in it. Just depends on what you're doing and how lucky you feel....

    I guess because they are called "Ohio Crankshaft" they must be forged here.

    When did that start applying it anything. specially crankshafts?



    I won't let on in the garage for fear it might accidently end up in an engine. Same thought process as a bad bolt or nut. Beat it beyond recognition and throw it in the round file.

    For about 750.00(cheaper if you hunt) you can buy a Lunati Sledgehammer. Thats not enough money to make me put a Ohio POS in my engine.

    For less than 700.00 you can buy a Callies Compstar. Now thats almost a no brainer.

    If your running stock length rods forget both of them. But then ask yourself why on that too.

    Bigger question is why you are running a 4.00 crank in a blown alky deal?

    "I'd put a better crank than an Ohio in it."

    Yep.

    Best crank you can afford for blown alcohol regardless. I'm thinking Callies or better.

    Why not ? Just curious what your thoughts are on a "better" stroke ?

    Are all the Ohio stuff not good ?

    Not a matter of just stroke. I am a big fan if CID for free. If you're buying a crank or a rotator, why not go for the extra cubes. I like 4.25 blown deals. I like making power in a big block without having to spin it like a SBC. I now, we spin them like SBCs and it SUCKS.

    Stay away from the Ohio cranks unless you wanna spend money for... And this is me...I got lucky and didn't bend a rod...Or smack a valve with a piston or hurt a lifter or the cam.

    new crank
    main bearings
    rod bearings
    pistons (hey I only needed 4 - but splurged and got 8)
    piston rings
    gaskets (don't think a full set is cheap)

    All the above was 5500.00

    This was NOT a billet crank, but it's replacement was.

    Buyer beware as they say...
