Hello there fellows, my name is Taylor. Before I get strung up on a pole for being a Ford guy with a Ford related question...actually more of a manufacturer question, I have owned 2 third gens with multiple modifications, and I have used the search engine on this site, so be easy on me please lol!! My question comes from reading on another site somebody mentioning that there was info and personal experience from some members with CAT products(not Catapillar)here on NastyZ28.com, specifically their crankshafts. The company has been out of business for roughly 10 years I believe, and there is very little on the internet about them other than people with no experience just bashing them for being import chincom crap. I bought a SBF 4340 forged 347 crank through Speedway Motors(great outfit in my experience)for $349 to my door. I don’t know why but I didn’t ask for the make(I know right?)as I assumed it would be a Procomp at that price and that’s what I wanted, and the selection of 347 cranks in that price range is very very limited so there aren’t many options. I have heard of CAT years ago but never thought anyone would still have those units new around for sale so I didn’t even think that that may be what they send. Anyhow, here I am with this CAT 347 crank that I took to my machinist(I wanted to get it checked out)halfway scared he was going to rip me a new one for bringing that crap in his shop, but he didn’t. He said actually, if this was one of their earlier cranks(2000-2002)they were manufactured and machined by Sunnen, which were made very well. We magfluxed, checked for taper and roundness, checked for straight...crank was perfect. I’ve read a ton of horror stories from people with horrible machining on their cranks, rods, bent, out of spec etc. I must have gotten one made on a Wednesday lol. Does anybody have any experience with CAT products of any kind? Good or bad? Thanks a lot for any help you guys may have, I really appreciate it!!
