Ferdinand's Revenge Engine Project: Part 2

In Part 2 we will have a look on the heart of the engine : the Crankshaft

This is a forged crankshaft from the USA

The first thing is always quality inspection!

This crankshaft was ok from the measurements and it didn`t runout when I check it between 2 centers on the lathe.
For this engine I decided to make an additional heat treatment:

Teniferieren in german     or    ferritic nitrocarburizing in english

Check the links:

After this was balancing: Uaah 30 gramms out of balancing!! at the first check.
But now it's perfect, alone and together with the flywheel and the Kennedy pressure plate.


For sure JPS 3,3kg Cromo Flywheel

Have a great Weekend!
