Pirated? I know I won't be spending my Union negotiated money on your product. You calling Union members fighting for fair wages and benefits PIRATES is inexcusable. Keep your Chinese crap.

Sir, out of frustration in multiple delays my interjection of humor was not intended to offend but to inform of "Time Pirated" and ultimate product receipt now available for distribution.

And, as I understand it, the situation HAS been resolved.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2...erez/23744299/

I've never met a Union that couldn't be bought.

And that too is the law of supply and demand at work. At least according to the marketplace that the law allows.

It will be interesting to see if this affects pricing at Harbor Freight.

It is not recommended to drill for full pressure, we do not have stroker cranks available.

Thanks for your response !
I think that I understand your 'reasoning' for not recommending drilling, as the use of A size throws , IMO, is somewhat asking for trouble when taking more metal away from them..no ?
Anyway, the broken cranks that I've seen (from another maker) were all drilled and broke thru the drilled rod throws.

Who was that manufacturer? SCAT is unaware there have been any failures to any of their drilled A crankshafts. While I realize there are / have been other Model-A crankshaft manufacturers, maybe this needs to be clarified to who was, --or was NOT the manufacturer so not to create confusion at a later date.

James Allison purchased the tooling from Chris Robinson and supposedly has the Burlington Crankshafts on the shelf and ready to sell. He is in TX, his phone number is 512-461-4906. I'm only selling the Scat crankshafts now. Don Snyder

As far as I know Burlington counterbalanced crankshafts are available from Al Allison in Texas for $1250. Check this out: http://www.burlingtoncrankshaft.com/...-us-mainmenu-3

Please let me know if this is not correct as I am planning to buy one.
