The big-block Ford features beefy 3.00-inch main bearings, which certainly contributes to the crank's durability. For some extra insurance, we added a set of ARP main studs. Here, the capacious dimensions of the Ford's crankcase are clearly evident. Thanks to Summit Racing for providing us with all the fasteners and gaskets used in this buildup. They can set you up with just about every item on our parts list.
