    That's a foundry in China,, might be an RPM crank or similar. Anything on the front counter weight?

    Could literally anybodies. YT Casting Technologies.
    All the RPM cranks I have seen are lazer etched on the front counterweight

    Hard to tell looks like 8-220 I was thinking it was an Elgin but it has always been a mystery.

    I am actually trying to learn something,, looked up YT casting technology, and it shows them in Malaysia. Happens that I have a YT crank sitting here, but came with no box.

    It was a wild ass guess Barry. I have seen them before myself. Who knows where they are from or who cast them. There are so many players in this stuff you never can tell anymore. If you buy enough connecting rods, I can get them with any name you like lazered across them.

    So that's were GM buys their 572 rods?

    What's really funny is that I was going to post earlier that you would come along with the name of the foundry.

    There are a couple of foundries in China that I found that start with "Y", as well as a couple of forum threads on other forums that comment about YT crankshaft markings, but difficult to accept information like that as "fact".

    I would be leary of any info unless you know somebody that opened a box with a name and pulled one out. Still doesn't mean much. Pouring cranks for RPM International today, tomorrow we pour for Procomp, then Pro Tech.
