2.3L Duratec Steel Crankshaft with Keyway Groove
Specially made steel crankshaft for Ford Duratec 2.3L with an added keyway groove for strength.
Does not include the key, see CRK-DURA-KEY.
Used in our 2.4L Duratec engines.
The standard crank assembly on the Duratec relies on a centre crank bolt being tightened sufficiently to hold the front pulley trigger wheel assembly, cam chain drive gear and crank in perfect alignment. In motorsport, this has several potential issues. It is quite likely that the loads and vibrations could cause these components to go out of alignment and at the very least cause a loss in performance, the chances are that everything could come completely loose causing catastrophic damage to your engine.
