I have had a potential offer on my hks rods and pistons, which means I may have a lightened/balanced stock long nose crank for sale soon, my price would be £500 + delivery.

Just buy a brand new one from RHDJapan or from Nissan dealers in US and take the risk out of a used one, most will have wear by now as they are over 10 years old.

Sorry but that statement is rubbish a crank floats on a film of oil, therefore as long as there are no oil issues it is quite usual to be at completely standard size. You also have to factor in 20% import duty on the item plus posatge then vat ontop of that. You used to bele to get stuff trhough without tax but everything I have had sent in the last 3 years has been taxed and they usaulayy add an admin fee aswell.

I still have a crank available, but dont have a micrometer currently, I am quite happy for you to call over and inspect it.

I was getting people offering me a crank for £500 ish. The statement can be seen in two ways rubbish or what happens in reality.

I know the crank spins on a film of oil but you never know the life is has had and the stresses it has been put through and how much it would have bent and distorted in that time. Lots of cranks I have seen have had varying levels of wear enough to warrant a grind and use .25 bearings which I do not want to do.

So £800 odd on a new crank is money well spent imo.

The point I was making is that if you pay £800ish to rhd or similar by the time this has arrived and you have payed the import taxs it is much more like total £1150.

At this point a used crank at £500 is much more appealing and I have only ever seen them bend if they have spun a bearing.
