440

Recommended Posts

Do i need to balance the crank if I go 440 piston. Or is the weight close, so there's no need?.

I would think the crank itself is already balanced. If you mean have it trued, if you're not messing with replacing the con rod and your careful handling the crank and don't drop it, I would think it would be fine. Lets see what others say.

Well I had guy tell me, that because of the piston weight, The crankshaft has to be balanced to the weight. Does this sound right ?.

The 440 pistons are usually lighter or about the same weight of the stock cast piston anyway..
