We started with a seasoned factory Volkswagen forged 40hp crank and perform a thorough inspection checking for wear and cracks. Once the integrity is confirmed the cranks that pass the inspection are then shot-peened. The bearing journals are then precision ground and mirror polished to the next serviceable bearing size under.
This crankshaft is designed to fit a 1200cc motor, commonly refereed to as a 40hp, produced from 1961 to 1965.
Main Journals: 2.135″ (54.25mm) = .030″ (.75mm) Undersized
Rod Journals: 2.135″ (54.25mm) = .030″ (.75mm) Undersized
