1919 Miller Race Engine Crankshaft

Orginal Crankshaft Balanced

A merging of old and new technologies was achieved in the balancing of a 1919 Miller crankshaft which was so out of balance that the carburettors foamed the fuel and the engine could not run.

A CAD model of the crank was developed and analyzed for rotating weight requirement.  The total heavy metal required and method of attachment to the vintage crankshaft was designed – and it finally ran smoothly in the original engine, first on the dyno and then in the car.

The 1919 Indy Race Car, which ran on the wooden track at Indianapolis, ran again at the Monterrey Historics in 2008.
