Many of you have seen this one before. I apologize if bringing it back
Domestickilla gave me a crankshaft, and it's a nice one that I want to
clean up and use again. You'll be seeing a lot of it and because of this,
this video deserves to be here. I fixed what I broke, and this was my

Crankshaft Balancing Counter Weight Reduction
This big block Chevy engine is getting a trim job on the crankshaft counter
weights because we are installing some .400" longer connecting rods with
some very light forgerd pistons. We had to remove a total of 400 grams to
get the crankshaft to balance correctly. Costa Mesa R&D Automotive Machine

Glyptal Application Process
In this video I detail the application process of a popular crankcase
coating... that is... if crankcase coatings are actually popular.
In this video, 98 coffee filters gave up the ghost. 238 q-tips paid the
ultimate sacrifice. Almost a dozen brushes were executed, and 3 aerosol
caps dispatched to their graves. Also, during the battle, several Dremel
tools were maimed, one severely.
Look, I'm doing everything I can to liven this topic up and make it
interesting. Cleaning and painting are about the least interesting things
someone else can watch. It's absolutely painful to edit, I know that much.
It's not so bad for the guy doing the actual painting, but I'm doing my
best to keep people's attention.
This is a full month's work in a half hour. I had to space the job out
because of my filming environment and the toxicity of materials I was
working with. Take my warnings and advice in the video seriously. They're
the words of someone who's done the job. They help set expectations.
The most useful thing I can do is post links to other discussions that have
already occurred, and to make room for places where people have posted
their experience with failures of engine coatings. Despite my searching, I
can not find any pictures or video. I found ONE plausible description of
the kind of failure that can occur with improper application, but it was
still a third-hand report. There are fans of this product posting in these
threads. If you are considering this treatment, WEIGH THE PROS & CONS FOR
YOUR BUILD, and YOUR HEALTH. Don't do this just because I did it.
So until anyone provides photo or video evidence, here are the links to
threads where it was discussed. This google search is mean. It's too
direct and to-the-point. It might hurt somebody's feelings? Yes, I've
read them all.
Crankshaft grinding Eagle 4340 Forged SBC Crank
CPMotorworks, Inc of Janesville Wi shows what is needed to repair poorly
ground journals of an aftermarket crankshaft. We were able to remove .002"
from these main journals to correct the hourglass shaped journals that were
the result of a poorly dressed grinding wheel and over-polishing.
"How To" Port polish an intake manifold
In this video I show you how to port polish an intake manifold. Remember to
wear your safety gear and take your time. The intake itself took roughly 2
hours to polish. Removal of the head is recommended before any grinding or
polishing to ensure none of the filings make it into the cylinder bore and
cause damage to the cylinder walls.
