What is this that came with my new crank?

Post by Dogwater » Wed Jan 31, 2018 6:48 pm

Ordered a new Eagle cast steel crank it arrived today with a ufo. Small steel rod with fixtures on each end. I guessing it’s for balancing?
I know now, it’s a nifty carrying handle, I found 2 screws also.
It was inside a bag that was taped to the bag the crankshaft was in?

Wasn’t hot to the touch. Maybe a depleted uranium rod.

When I go get this thing balanced should I bring it along w/ piston,rods,rings,bearings? To be honest I don’t know what it is.

My guess is it has something to do with the manufacturing/measuring/identification process and was left in there by accident.

the guy on work release who is on the line was turning down a bad crank into a shank when his PO walked in, so he dropped it in the box.

Someone tossed it in the box just to mess with your head.
I've done that. :mrgreen:
