I know that the weights on a Scat crank hit the pan, on a three dip i just ground the horseshoe and bolt down to clear, on the four dip can i just cut the center section out of the horseshoe or should i just grind it down also?
Stock crank.

thanks Rick

I suppose it depends on which SCAT crank you order. If you order the long stroke, it could hit something. I just installed a standard grind SCAT in a 26 with the 4 dip crankcase and have no problem with the crankshaft hitting anything. I have not used one in a 3 dip pan.

Norman, it is my understanding that all the Scat cranks for 4 cylinder Fords are machined from the same forging. The stroker/larger journal cranks most likely have the same dimensions to the throws. The problem seems to arise from differences in the T pans. Some foul, some don't. It is a fix it if you have to scenario, as you have found.

Hope this helps.

I fixed it as it was hitting the rear horseshoe dead center, i put Prussian blue on the crank counterweight and turned the crank, it lifted the pan up, so i checked the blue marks and just cut the center piece about 11/2" out and no more hits and won't effect anything.
