Default Re: My 1st decent drive of Model A and discussion

Luckily here in England counter weighted cranks are available and plentiful and cheap .Ford in England built AA trucks into 1936 many thousands also thousands of industrial units through WW2 . These were fitted with the fully counter weighted crank .They can be fitted into an A engine by turning down the mains, normally the big ends are left stock sometimes the pan needs to be "massaged" to give rotational clearance. Seems to work just fine . I have a whole heap of B cranks collected over the years all very very cheap but you pay the shipping !!!
