Hi All


Has anyone a good used spare crankshaft or crankshaft drawings available ?


The cranks are no longer available from Lotus but the forgings are (bare). Considering having a batch of 10 or 20 manufactured but could do with drawings in order to make to Lotus spec. 


Anyone interested please let me know.


Costs will depend on volume.


May also be able to offer an alternative con rod length and forged piston assembly for a lighterweight rotational crank assembly or possible a piston with oversize diameter.


Possibility to have some "H" beam rods made ( balanced end to end) and forged pistons with a more slipper type design to reduce friction/mass etc etc and possible a longer rod for better bore to rod ratio (torque)
