    If the embarrassment is a problem, just come up with some story about how your wife found out about your girlfriend and sprayed windex on your crank...

            I used WD 40 and a long piece of binder twine. That's a fiber string used to bale hay. A lot of plastic twine is used today to bale hay. The twine was easy to pull back and forth and did a nice job of conforming to the shape of the jounals. The journals cleaned!

              It takes a genius athlete, armed with a micrometer, to use one of these and NOT polish measureable taper into crank journals.

              Even then, severely dulling a new belt first is necessary.

              Tolerances to shoot for are on page 35-36 here. (Yes, street engines can "get away" with more)

              Lots of other interesting info, including the importance of directional polishing

                " Whats so wrong with taking it back to the shop and having it professionally prepped? I don't take chances with cranks."

                Well, he DID say he'd moved - maybe he moved too far for it to be a practical matter - taking it back to the shop that turned it.[B)]

                1957 Transtar 1/2ton
                1963 Cruiser
                1960 Larkvertible V8
                1958 Provincial wagon
                1953 Commander coupe
                1957 President two door

                No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
