Probably un-commom, at least in the USA.

Found this on MotorSports Archive:

The crankshaft is standard ; all Alvis crankshafts I , II are marked " Ambrosia," which merely certifies that they were made by Ambrose Shardlow & Sons, Sheffield. Without details of the valve timing I cannot, Of course, say much about the camshaft, but I believe at that date all those parts were made by E.N.V., the Alvis Co. not possessing the necessary cam-grinding machinery till a year or two later.

Ambrosia was a supplier to Trafford Park in the 1920s. Part of the drive to portray the T as a British-made car.

What's their reputation? How do they hold up against breaking compared to US produced cranks?
