Ford 3000 158 gas crankshaft - Out of Stock?

I have a 1973 Ford 3000 3 cylinder 158 ci gas engine totally apart. Everyone I have talked to says new 3.8" stroke crankshafts are at least a few months out. Used cranks seem to be significantly more expensive than new.

Does anyone have a source?
Out of curiosity, could I put a 4.2" stroke crank in it with matching rods and pistons and turn it into a 172 ci?

Thanks!

3600 had a 175 gas engine, good to know.

Wasn't sure about the -600 series, all my books are for the older -000 series that I own.

Where are you located?
I have one, maybe 2 of them here.
In the Twin Cities, MN
But shipping can be a deal killer.
And yes, if you take the 4.2 crank out of a 3000/3600 diesel and use the gas pistons from a 3600 you will have a match. Gain a slight bump in HP too.
My email should be open.

I have a reference that shows the later 3600 having a 175 gas engine.

Yes it can be done, my book doesn't show a 175 gas engine, only diesels, but you can use three of the pistons for a early 5000 233 gas engine that has the same bore and stroke (4.2x4.2) as the three cylinder 175.

It may require a rebalance.

Today's Featured Article - The Ferguson System Principal An implement cutting through the soil at a certain depth say eight inches requires a certain force or draft to pull it. Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
