    Its nice that Jack has a crank , I don't think a 185 crank would fit any way as 1955 and up cranks have larger main journals, Ed

    I like to keep things stock, and the stock 51 Champion engine is already a pretty long stroke, so I wouldn't care to make it longer.
    SI has new cranks, if you want to spend about $600.

    1951 Champion crank

    I was just at the Apple Blossom Festival Show in Winchester, VA and was asked if there were any 170 cranks laying around the area. The person is restoring a 51 Champion and the crank is toast.

    On another note, he mentioned he had a 185 from a 55 Champion. Wouldn't it be a better scenario if he rebuilt and installed the 185 in the '51?

    thx
