    Default Durable, near indestructible, crankshaft?

    Ok. I am soliciting reccomendations for a bulletproof (or near as I can get), crank. I have a 14:1 620 BBC. 957 hp on a stingy dyno located at Gearheads shop in Atlanta, TX, so it is plenty strong. I broke the 4340 Ohio Crankshaft 4.75 stroke crank that was in there this past weekend. Haven't taken so much as a valvecover off yet, so don't truly know cause or extent of damage. I'm asking for suggestions from others that may have more experience. The engine does take the occasional hit of nitrous, so far from me as a 350 shot. On a microswitch only after full throttle. Next year, it may see 6-700 on the button. It turns 6300-6600 on motor depending on air quality. 7100-7200 on button. Used as occasional lake racer (nitrous), and will be ME class participant if I can ever get off work when it's running!-Am considering Callies Magnum, Callies Magnum XL - but am concerned about the lightening vs the longevity with the standard Magnum. Also considering a Callies Billet and a Sonny Bryant. -Thanks in advance!-John

    Default Callies!

    Mailman my new build will Get a Callies Magnum and Dads got the Magnum.

    Tiger likes these Cranks

    im probably going to Upgrade to the Knife edged and fully Polished Magnum.


    i done my reahserach on Ohio and pretty much come up with Junk?

    they are Imported Cranks that they check in house and then they Usaully always need some Machine work when you get them Home!

    Callies,Sonny,Lunati,Crower are all very good Cranks

    The fact that you broke an Ohio crank at that stroke is not surprising. With a hit of spray, even less surprised.

    At that HP level, you be hard pressed to break this.

    The only forging that I would trust at that stroke is a Crower. Most I know are running a billet.

    Bryant 1st
    Winberg 2nd
    LA 3rd,

    Those are probably $ 2200 and up

    Then you get to the $ 1600 and under series.

    Myself, I don't care for the Crower.

    I'd throw Scat in there for a Billet, any day along with Velasco. I wouldn't run a forged 4.75 crank, just saying if...
    Billets are looking at 16-20wks to get one. Not sure you're going to get a Bryant for 2200.00

    LAE today. Its worse than calling for tech support from Dell computers. You need to give them a SS # for a credit check just to talk to them on the phone. Notice anything familiar about the SP logo? Think CP pistons. Now part part of the Pankl Group.
