Ive been told for the second time that a chev crank will work in a T motor and may be better than a Model A crank.
Jack Darron was the first to mention it, I thought he was loosing it. The idea kinda turns my gut, but I`d like to learn more about this since I have a crank and rods. Thanks. Dan
See thread entitled "Model A cranks revisited", March 21 for plenty of info on the Chevrolet crank's use in a T engine.
There were a couple of postings on the MTFCI forum that are not currently avaiable on-line. This is a test to see if I can attach a word file with those posting here or not.

Chevy engine partrs in T part 2.doc (118.8 k)
Both my files were word documents -- but the fist one -- is worthless but the second one has a nice photo of the 28 Chevy crank in the T block. They both come up in word on my computer before I post them but not after they are posted. Sorry about the bad fist file.

The upload worked the last time. It has a nice photo of each unmodified crank setting on a T block. Give you some idea of how much they are off from the original.
