New Farmall M-450 crankshaft

Recommended Posts

I am in the process bringing backing the Vohlbracht stroker crankshaft and pistons for the Farmall M-450.  After talking with a few people, I’ve decided to try and offer them in both 5.75” and 6.00" strokes.  I would appreciate your feedback so I can get an idea of how many of each stroke I’ll have made in the first batch. 
Thanks, 

Greg

Hi there ,thanks for posting,

looking at the pictures I’d say these are cast rather than forged????........may I ask what kind of material they would be made of ???

 

Thanks,

MMI, I’m really not sure what your question is or if you’re even looking for a response, but we have acquired the molds from Volbrachts and I’m working with a company that will finish the crankshafts with some very nice CNC equipment. 
Thanks for the interest I think?

They are being made out of a nodular cast iron just like the original M&W cranks. 

Thanks for the info ?

Called the foundry today, the material is 805506 ductile iron.

i think @bitty wants a couple ?

Want for sure. Probably not in the budget at the moment but I need to find the particulars as my 3rd 450 needs a crankshaft although I might have a good 400 crankshaft

Stay away from Denny's , he is the biggest crook  selling parts.

I've heard lots of horror stories about Denny's,  but I'd put Brian Miller selling Cub Cadet pulling parts right down there with them, or maybe a bit lower.

   Some of the stories I've heard about Denny's I can hardly believe that anybody still does business with them.

I know at 5.75 no clearancing is needed, at 6 I believe number 2 or 3 rod needs ground.
