SCAT Crankshafts Featured on Chevy Hardcore
SCAT Crankshafts was recently featured in a Chevy Hardcore article all about engine balancing! Gain some insight from Tom Lieb as he discusses the importance of crankshaft balancing to make your ride run smoother.
When an engine is running and the crankshaft is rotating, the connecting rod and piston assembly are reciprocating (traveling up and down). Balancing a crankshaft is a matter of managing rotational and reciprocating movement. Both directions of movement need to be considered when balance is determined. But, how is balance achieved?
Generally speaking, it is done by taking away or adding metal to the counterweights. But, to find balance, you need to know bobweight. The bobweights are actual weights that are attached to a crankshaft’s rod journals when balancing, to simulate the weight of the rod and piston assembly. With the bob weights in place, the crank is ready to be spun on a balancing machine. While there are simple formulas to calculate the amount of bobweight needed, there is a lot that these calculations fail to consider.

SCAT Crankshafts Featured in Engine Builder Magazine
SCAT Crankshafts was recently featured in the April issue of Engine Builder Magazine! Here’s an excerpt from the article, all about balancing rotating assemblies:
Since balancing has become more critical, it is important to know what constitutes a balanced rotating assembly or not. If you look down the nose of a V8 or V6 crank, you’ll notice that the counterweights are like a corkscrew and that’s because they react with each other through the system of the crank itself. If you understand that then you can understand where to remove the metal.
‘When a crank is too heavy in one place, that means it’s too light in another,’ says Tom Lieb, founder of Scat Enterprises. ‘Being able to look at a crankshaft and understand where that weight is and make those decisions – not everybody can do that.’
