A friend of mine has a new pressed up polished and numbered crank supplied by a well known Gold Star specialist. It looks really good. Does anyone know the correct con rod side to side clearance? This crankshaft has fifteen thou, side to side at the crankpin. Too much? or is that ok for a pressed up crank?

Assuming the good crank assembly came from Phil Pearson, why not just give him a phone call and check what he recommends. He is more than helpful whenever I have called him.

I have just had a look at my crank, number 814, but it is in a set of cases so best I can do is slide a feeler gauge down side of rod and 0.015” is a nice fit. It’s never been run yet so still brand new.
