With bearing-to-crank specs within the acceptable range, the heavy-duty forged crankshaft is carefully installed in the cylinder block. A quick spin after it is seated ensures there are no hang-ups and spreads lubrication around the circumference of all the crankshaft journals. One of the additional benefits of the short stroke in our big-block is reduced inertia required to spin the rotating assembly. This enhances the rev capability of the engine by reducing parasitic drag.
