I'm building one now. It's a scat crank with eagle rods and JE pistons. Go to WWW.SCATCRANKSHAFTS.COM RAY

Thanks, had a look there and in the Ford parts manual and wonder about cast Vs. forged, stroke ratio and piston speed for a stroker above 393 since we've elected to run a 6-71 blower.

Thanks 7DMach1 I think I'm going for the Scat 4.0" or 4.1" crank and H beam 6.2 rods, Why did you go for eagle rods and what's their website? I dunno about the pistons yet (JE inverted dome?) as I need around 8 anna half to 1 for the 6-71.

Are we still talking about 351C's???
Cranks and rods like described would be a tight fit in a 9.2" block. The 351W block would have a lot more room with its 9.5" deck.

Good Luck!

I agree. I have a buddy with a stroker cleveland, it has 6.2 inch rods with a 3.7 stroke crank and the pistons for that combo are extremely short. The pin is way up in the oil control ring land.

I dont think a 6.2 rod will fit with that much stroke.

Just exactly how are the oil rings supported in those long rod/stroker applications where the wrist pin intersects the ring lands? And what are the implications and consequences for piston/cylinder bore longevity in a 3000-5000 mile per year street/strip motor?

There is a steel "spacer ring" that bridges the gap. I have seen aluminum piston buttons with the ring groove in it on extreme strokers in old Car Craft magazines.

His motor uses the buttons since the pin is pretty high into the ring land.

Not sure how well that would hold up in a street type appliciation that sees a fair amount of miles in a year.

Scat have recommended a 4" stroke and 6" rod or I could drop to a 3.850" crank or hunt down some shorter rods. I'd like to stay with the Cleveland block.
