MG TD TF 1500 - Crankshaft wanted
|Hello group, a customer of mine is looking for a good used crankshaft.|
Very cheap crank on Aus "fleabay" at present @ $A195. Seller is quoting $A190 to ship to States. Its been appearing 4 sale for some time I am surprised someone hasnt claimed it as a spare.
"MG TC MGTC MG TD MGTD MG TF mgtf CRANKSHAFT .THIS IS THE CRANKSHAFT FOR THE XPAG /XPEG SERIES OF ENGINES. THERE IS ENOUGH METAL FOR MACHINING TO TAKE PLACE. MEASUREMENTS FOR THE LITTLE ENDS BEARING ARE ALL CLOSE AT APP. 44.1 MM THE MAINS ARE ALL CLOSE AT APP. 51.01 MM [ PLEASE ALLOW FOR ANY MINOR INACCURACIES WITH MY MEASURING.]
ACCORDING TO" TC'S FOREVER" THIS CRANK IS AT ITS 3RD REGRIND AND STILL HAS 2 REGRINDS TO GO. SAFE MINIMUM FOR THE LITTLE ENDS IS 43.75mm and 50.75mm FOR THE MAINS
CRACK TEST, I HAVE HUNG THE CRANK AND TAPPED WITH A SMALL HAMMER AND THE CRANK HAS RUNG TRUE WITH NO FLAT OR DEAD SOUND DENOTING A CRACK,THIS BASIC METHOD WAS ALWAYS ACCURATE BEFORE THE AVAILABILITY OF X-RAY"
|Good morning Len, |
I have my cars original crank that would need ground but probably usable with a little machine work. It is not actually the original but a replacement from the late 60's.
