Just scored a bunch of stuff for two projects I am working on including a Flash Craft flywheel new in box for Big Cad engines. Address on box is from Albuquerque NM. The name sounds familiar but can't place it. Also last week amongst the pile of Kool Cad stuff ,a new hyd cam from comp cams , a used hyd cam from Schneider, re-machined Olds flywheel, cut to fit Cad crank . Used but in good condition. It has been one of those times that proves the sun does not shine on the same dogs A** every day. It was my day/week.

Schneider's are regrind. I contacted them, because I had good things from them many years ago with ponchos. They told me no billets or blanks for BBC. And I know that's a lie.

I had Schneider grind the cam in my Buick 455 years ago.

Was trying to buy a set of Aluminum heads from the place associated with this site but nothing in stock and no real date for more. I wanted a bare set of the non boogieman style heads to set up the way I wanted. Seems they have no plans for bringing back the 7.1" rods also that will hang on stock Cad crank pin. I will probably have to cut down the crank and use chrysler 7.1" rods or buy some after market Olds rods to get 7" or longer. don't really want to cut crank small enough to use the 7.1" BB chevy rods.

What's wrong with down the caddy crank? I was thinking if doing just that? Please inform me on what will or could go wrong with this? It just might save me some troubles. Thanks

Since the Cad crank is SO massive. I don't think cutting it down would be a problem. But you might want to contact CadCo to make sure.

If you aren’t changing the stroke then it will be stronger than an offset ground crank.
