Part Of The Week

November 30th, 2015

The heart and soul of any hop up job is the crankshaft. The only way to go back in the day was a trip over to Vic Edelbrock’s joint and get one of his massage jobs. He started with a brand new crank straight from a Mercury dealer. After strokeing it .125″ he did one of his famous balance jobs. Add a set of his also balanced pistons and the setup was good for an additional 20 horses. The crank would set you back $89.50 and the pistons added another $46.24 in 1948.
