Has anyone heard of Hawks Racing stroker cranks, they are sold on ebay for pretty cheap and i wanted to know if these are of good quality or if any one has had problems with these cranks?

what duration and lift cam would perform the best on a 393?
looking for 500 or more horsepower

using victor jr. heads, victor jr. intake, and 850 or 750 double pumper.

Haven't heard of Hawk's cranks,

But the cam you're looking for is a Comp 35-772-8 286-292 duration, .610/.621 lift.

STAY AWAY!!!
THESE CRANKS ARE JUNK. I BOUGHT ONE IN DECEMBER FOR $300 OR SO THINKING IT WAS A DEAL. AFTER $6OO IN MACHINE WORK THAT $300 WAS NO DEAL. BOB WEIGHT OF 1900...NO WAY. THEY TELL A BUNCH OF LIES TO MAKE THE CRANK SOUND GOOD. IT DID SPEC OUT TO A 393 (3.850) BUT THE THROWS ALL HAD TO BE SHAVED DUE TO HITTIN THE PIN BOSSES. MINE TOOK 4 SLUGS OF HEAVY METAL TO GET THE DAMN THING TO BALANCE. THE GUY WONT RETURN ANY EMAILS ONCE HE GETS YOUR MONEY. AGAIN....STAY AWAY!

SCAT IS WHAT I ENDED UP USING. OHIO CRANKSHAFT AND EAGLE MAKE GOOD KITS ALSO. DSS IS ANOTHER PLACE TO CONSIDER WHEN BUILDING A STROKER MOTOR.

GOOD LUCK AND SPREAD THE NEWS ON STAYING AWAY FROM THIS HAWK CRANK.
