Japan / Mexico,
Hi Gary,Hiroshi, I'm curious to know if you needed to make any tweaks to the crankshaft.
When I first started thinking about the Eagle 94mm crank, I was reading in EvoM that there needed to be something done to keep the oilway plugs from vibrating out. This was a problem with old Alfas too, but here we are about a thousand years later
Then on my car, English Racing said they were going to do "something" to it. On the invoice it just says "ER spec 94mm Eagle crank. Mods to make it better". But I don't know what they did. So I've been curious about it ever since.
As for the plugs on the crank, no I don't do anything for the crank except I made sure that the plugs are tightened enough and the crank is with their ESP Armor finish. I always use new eagle crank but I have had no experience that the plug gets loose. But I modified the block side since this is with aluminum rods.
As for English Racing spec crank, I don't know what exactly they did on your crank. If they did some thing, I guess that could be the oil feed chamfering or/and remove some material from counter weights and re-balance or so.
Thank you!This is a great thread you have going here!
