Crankshaft (8 Weight) Large Nose
This crankshaft is made to Jaguar light weight E-Type specification with a longer and larger nose diameter for driving the Dry sump oil pumps. When fitting to an original Jaguar iron blocks the width of the rear main bearing housing and cap will need to be reduced. This was a modification done by the factory in period to make the crankshaft stronger. Manufactured by the UKs leading crank manufacturer, Crosthwaite & Gardiner crankshafts are some of the finest around. Designed in house by C&G, all our cranks are manufactured exclusively for us to the highest possible quality standards. Starting life as a solid steel billet, they are then hewn into the finished article through a multi-stage machining, nitriding and grinding process. All our designs have been well proven over the years and can be attested to many a race victory, with different variations of crank also available to suit the particular engine build. We refuse to be left behind, which is why modern motorsport techniques such as gun drilling, use of heavy metal inserts and super finishing can be found incorporated into our crank designs.
