FS: 944 2.5 knife-edged crankshaft

It's a 944 2.5L (78.9mm stroke) crankshaft that was knife-edged by Kokeln many years ago.

It doesn't look like a "full-lighten" job but still a lot of material removed. This is comparable to a 944 vendor "medium lighten" job...just under 50 lbs.

The market price for a freshly-ground 944 crank of this work is around $1000 + shipping.

I would like to get around $600 shipped for this crankshaft. Shipping will be a lot which is why I am including it in the cost, as regardless of lightening this is still in the 50lb range and is 2 ft+ long. Open to offers.

Crankshaft is for sale.

Weighs 49.8lbs per the bathroom scale method. This is a "medium lighten" job. Bearing journals look good, they might be dirty in the picture from handling.

I would advise polishing the journals at a minimum before use, just for good measure, not necessity.

Close-up pictures...some machinist marks on #1 counterweights...anybody recognize those?

As you can see the bearing surfaces are all very good...there are very light wear lines on the journals which is why i recommend a polish but I believe stock-size rod bearings would work fine on this crankshaft.

Knife and edged cranks are sold for around 500 on ebay when they come around, anyway wasn't this motor the one you bought from tonyG for only $ 800.00 bucks? what a way to pass savings to your fellow members, are you related to lart?

I believe they are screw-plugs but I will confirm this afternoon when I get home.

All four plugs are like this - can you tell me if this is factory or not?

if they are threaded the are not factory when cranks are re worked we remove the press in plugs for a proper cleaning then tap and thread the holes for screw in plugs.

The hole looks to be threaded with allen cap screws ...
