This is stuska1 deal, he's just sharing with me on some of his work and I thought I would pass it on. He said they were not going to dyno the engine. Stuska 1 built and dyno'ed my 484 Hi-Riser FE. But I will pass on whatever I find out.

Got an update, "4.04 x 3.5, scat 4340 crank, compstar small journal rods, Manley pistons, flat tappet solid cam, has to run stock rockers and 2bbl. Block is filled about one third, put steel caps on one through 4. (They were free). Will have 062 vortecs with erson valves a FSP springs. We are going to dyno it, it has a 175 psi cranking compression rule, 2bbl 4412 carb, cast heads and intake rule. I usually run lash caps and longer PR , gives bigger surface for those rockers to run on "

Anyone else tried or used this method? I found out about this method in the early 90's when I bought a solid circle track cam from a cam company in Brookhaven Miss. (I read a lot of circle track magazines back then) for a 400 cuin SBC I was building for a friend as cheap as possible.

thanks for posting , nice looking machine shop and
some detail work getting done . What are the benefits from turning crank then adding mallory ? Is it just for less windage and drag or does it lessen the load on bearings too ?

Simply it had to much counter weight for the rods and pistons and he did not want to drill a bunch of holes.

If there was to much crank counter weight why are there Mallory slugs in it?

Correction... "I took a tad too much off the counter weights in the lathe, that's why I had to put about 40 grams back on each end."

ok got it . I can see the smaller constant radius counterweight being less drag and windage than the holes . Always admire stuska's way of building the grassroots level racers engine . Not the easiest of way of doing things .

Update...."Heads were real rusty someone had them outside, gave them an acid bath. Scribed the balancer every 90° for valve adj. And if you need to do a leak down comes in handy too."
