Crankshaft Cost?

I'm not sure if this is where I should post this question, but here goes.

Is $75 for a 258 crank and rods a good deal? My heep has 233K on the engine and has devolped a slight rod knock. I figure if I'm going to rebuild it, I might as well stroke it!! Just wondering what you guys are paying for stroker cranks and rods

Thanks,
-AJ-

Sounds like a good deal. I've seen cranks go on Ebay for over twice that. Buy em' up, have it all balanced and throw it in.

I paid more than twice that and only for the crank.

Around here I can usually score a crank and rods for about $100

Re: Crankshaft Cost?

Thanks guys looks like I'll go for it. I can have the whole long block for the $75 if I want it. I really have no use for the block or head. It looked like an alternator was on it, but i'm not sure about any other accessories. If anyone wants the rest of this engine they can have it, but you have to take the whole thing. Let me know by Sunday, that's when I'm gonna pick it up.
