Anyone out there know anyone that welds & regrinds cranks? I have a Crower 4.500 that has a bad rod journal-I appreciate your time & response-I do have a call into Crower-

Lunati does, in fact if you go to their home page they have a section on repairs.

Zip.

Default Thanx

Thanx for the info & Hammer,I dont mind sharing-Anytime-Again,Thanx for the info- I figure the cost of this crank new & its probably worth fixing-
I buy & sell parts but not junk-I had rather spend the money & break even(or on occasion lose money) than screw someone-Im one of those guys that can't junk a car or throw a potential fixable part away-Guess its a sickness--LOL Im sure plenty of the guys out there can relate--

I would steer clear of Crankshaft Specialist. Several years ago I had some trouble dealing with Doug with a problem on one of his cranks that he repaired. I had to file a complaint with the BBB. At the time they were a BBB member but now they not only aren't a member but they have a F rating. Do a google search on them and check the BBB report.
