1071 crank?

22 comments

  1. Ive purchased a crank but am having problems identifying it. Its got 2' mains and the journals are 1.625', and is EN40B, but i cant find an AEG number anywhere.

    The only stamp visible is a 707 number. To be more precise, it is 707/641/?. I am seriosuly hoping i havent bought a duff crank!:?

    It must be a Mk I/IIS crank if it really is of EN40B and for Mini. You could measure the distance between the centre of the mains and centre of the big ends. If you multiply that by a factor 2 you get the stroke, which will help you identifying which type of S crank it is. If that is about 61.9mm, then it's a 970S. If the stroke is about 68.3mm, then you have the 1071S. Otherwise, if the measurement gives about 81.3mm (for 1275S), then there are still two options. The early AEG316 is not cross-drilled, while the later spec AEG480 is.

    There is also a line of green paint on one of the throws – if i could work out how to post pics ill put one up. Does this have any signifigance?

    I have bought three 1071 cranks till I found one that wasn't cracked of those three I found the casting numbers ground off in aid of balancing good luck I spent way to much…But found a good one 10/10 ground. Morris cooper s 1071 needs help.

    Sorry to ask another crank question, but I have bought a crank with the following references :-

    AEG 330

    707 641 A

    I am hoping it is a 970s crank, am I right?

    Thanks

    Mark
