Ron, the good news is that I have spoekn with Moldex, and they would be
happy to build their first TR6 steel crank. The bad news is that they
estimated the cost to be $6K. With the plummeting US$ against the Euro and
BPS, that is starting to look like good value compared with the cost of
importing a steel crank from the UK (Cambridge Motorsports distributes
If that is too rich for Walt, have the crank nitrided and cross-drilled, and
remove as much weight as saefly possible from the rotating mass. I've read
too many of Kas' stories on the wobbly TR6 crank to know that this is the
primary reason why our old cranks are self-destructive.
Gee, talk about being cranky.
