I do not think QED build race engines anymore but I do know Farndon Engineering make the steel crankshaft.

Petter, I do believe that the EN19 "classic" crankshaft is a Farndon product. However, the EN40 "modern style" , I believe someone said was manufactured by Doug Kiddy Engineering . I know they make cranks for people like Geoff Richardson, so quality should be ok.... (!)

Hi, last time I was down at QED (late 2006) there was a stock of EN40 crankshaft forgings in their stock (probably 25+) awaiting maching

Suggest that you at least talk to QED.

Burtons can also supply (std & narrow journal, plus knife edge etc)
