Hi, I am new to this forum and want to say hello to all.I have 1946 J3 that I keep on Long Island.Currently my "technical director" is rebuilding my A-65 Continental. We are trying to locate a serviceable crankshaft as mine is out of limits on one journal by several machinist's hairs. Any suggestions are much appreciated as we are having a problem locating one.All the other parts including new cylinders that we purchased seem to be readily available.I am now one month with no Cub.If not for a friend at my home field that lends me his beautiful Legend Cub I would be in therapy by now.Summers coming and I am getting nervous.Please help if you can.
