    Question Ohio Crankshaft...Feedback?

    Well, being that my prior 598 build dreams went poof, I'm back to considering a 496 stroker kit for my mark-4 block.
    Doing more research and looking for feedback on Ohio Crankshaft for a forged 4340 rotating assembly. vs Eagle/Scat

    Thanks for any feedback.

    i've ran 1 before and it did fine, but i wasn't layin any boost or nitrous to it either. ran it for 2yrs without issue. get with cncmotorsports.com and ask for clint anderson, that dude gives me the best balanced rotating assembly prices. i just ordered a 496 stroker kit with je blower flattops/upgraded wrist pins, eagle hbeams with l19's, je extreme nitrous rings, 4.25 forged eagle crank, clevite bearings for 2070.00 internally balanced and shipped cheapest price i could find close to that was 2476.00 that's a big 400 buck difference

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    I have heard alot of not so positive things about them. I would stick with someone more reputable, (Scat or Eagle). If your looking at Scat I can help you out a little bit...lmk.

    Their stuff has issues. You will probably pay someone to correct them. So buy decent stuff to begin with and be better off.

    As Scott at Ohio Crank says himself "there's a little get what you pay for there"

    I don't do Scat either.

    Eagle stuff is the best of the three.

    It always surpises me when I hear someone say that they don't care for Scat crankshafts. From all the cranks I have have seen from Scat, they were head and shoulders above an Eagle. I have to believe that way to many people are buying the WRONG crank from Scat, (because it's cheaper) and then bitch when it doesn't live up to their expectations. Scat sells a marid of differant cranks, the cheapest being what they refer to as a REPLACEMENT crank. Too many people buy these, cause they are cheap, and then bitch when they don't balance like a Eagle. Well duh! If you have ever seen a Scat -2 crank, youd throw rocks at the Eagle.

    I have heard the same not so positive things. I'd never run any of their stuff, but to each his own. I find it funny that they always have a big two-page spread in National Dragster, yet I don't know anyone who has good things to say about them.

    Is that the shop that says..."our short blocks are 100% ready to assemble and no need to go anywhere near a machine shop" ?

    Also...thanks for all the Ohio feedback, I'll pass on them

    I don't know about their "over seas forged" cranks, but know a few that run their billet cranks and they are as happy as can be. They come to you like a forged crank where you need to balance them, unlike getting a new Bryant. All they Bryant cranks that I have seen come balanced to the bob weight that you tell them (which is dang cool). I am planning on trying one of their billet cranks in the future.

    I for one have bought one of the ohio cranks,they were nice to pre turn it for me. std/.010 brand new

    also dont fall for the 4.250 stroke w/6.135 stock long rod deal it will cost you about 600.00 in mallory crankshaft balance job.

    gn7 post x2 i like scat cranks

    i like the scat cast steel pro comp crank kit is a great deal for us pump gas guys up to 700 hp to 6000 rpm, any power level over that then go 4340 cranks,

    also i like scat straight shot oil system and a 3/4 groove main bearings from f/m (coated) just say no to crossdrilled cranks

    oh ya... just my 2 cents/ imho ya whatever.

    ANY4.25/6135 xrank will require a ton of mallory, any one who tells you different is full of chit! All 4.250/6.135 cranks are meant to be external. Period. Can't tell you how many peps have bought a Scat 4.250/6/135 crank and then bitch when it would internally balance. Scat never said it could.

    i'm not sure hammer, but i've bought 4-5 stroker kits from them over the past 5yrs and they've all been great, never an issue. once you place the order, 2-3wks later your rotating assembly shows up, balance sheet and all. only time i don't use cncmotorsports for assemblies is when i build bbf's, have to go to mustang depot for that, and they have shiat service, and i always carry them in to my guy , have them checked. i'm a biggggg tight wad, nobody's ever came close to cnc's prices on complete balanced rotating assemblies.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.
