Wanted GPW Crankshaft Chain Drive cam

Post by JMadsen » Fri Jul 06, 2018 12:26 pm

rebuilding my 45 GPW and the crank has been welded before and now has a crack. I found an MB Willies crank local but I'd really prefer to use a Ford Crank.

any Leads or help appreciated.

Thanks
Josh

I have two of them....where are you located? I'm in the SF Bay Area but this would have to be crated in wood or somehow boxed to prevent it from getting the nose destroyed or it just plain getting cracked in half. It is also heavier than hell and shipping is going to be a bummer. If you can pick it up or have someone else stop by that would be preferential to me....I'm not in the shipping business and have no crates here to do that.

Thanks guys, I'm located in Salt Lake Utah.

Chuck, I don't know anyone in the Bay area' but I may have to find someone.
I understand not wanting to package one up.
I may be going to Reno next month to hot August nights with a friend if I can get out of work a couple days. maybe I could find someone from California heading there?
I'll send you a private message.

thanks
Josh

You can always mail him a wooden crate and all the packaging materials, usps takes 50 or 60 lbs, then call ups to pick it up when it is packaged. They will take 150# from a residence. Bit costly, but hens teeth are tough to find.

Doesn't Ron sell crank kits ready to go? he may even have GPW cranks.
