Crower Hydraulic Roller Lifters
GM DURAMAX 6600 Rods & Crankshaft
Crower has been making top-end, high performance connecting rods & crankshafts for more than 25 years. We have the experience and state-of-the-art technology to build some of the highest quality and most reliable rods & crankshafts on the market.
Our steel billet connecting rods feature only the finest USA-made proprietory steel, which is CNC-machined to remove all surface imperfections. They are 100 percent magnaflux-inspected, checked for surface hardness, and then machined to final size to exacting tolerances within 1/1,000 of an inch. Each set of rods is fully balanced and then shot-peened to achieve the ultimate in strength and durability. Other features include: Drilled and chamfered wrist-pin oil holes on each rod for additional oiling, to prevent galling; deep, double-ribbed caps for superior strength at high rpm; and a hollow-dowel alignment fastening system for positive cap alignment. The rods are available in I-beam models with either premium H-11 tool-steel rod bolts (7/16; 220,000 psi) or AMS5844 (7/16; 280,000 psi) bolts as upgrades. They can also be ordered with a special, pressure-fed oiling hole from the big end to the pin end of each rod, for pressurized wrist-pin oiling. Custom Lengths also available and fully machined in San Diego.

Beehive Valve Springs
Beehive valve springs have been known in the industry as having a lower mass at the retainer end thus allowing for better valve control. This is only partially the reason for the better valve control. Beehive valve springs are unique when it comes to coil spacing, rate control, and also using a MA wire cross section. Beehive springs benefit from utilizing ovate shaped wire. This wire more effectively distributes the stress over the entire wire area allowing for more complexity within the spring improving the fatigue life of the spring.

Stainless Steel Shaft Rockers
For those of you that feel most confident running a steel based valve train, we offer you the Crower collection of shaft mounted stainless steel rocker arms. Each and every configuration has been religiously scrutinized to offer extreme rigidity and accuracy while optimizing moment of inertia phenomena condition. Crower engineers made ease of installation and maintenance a top priority so you’ll never waste a moment when time is critical at the track. Our stainless steel shaft rocker systems are a perennial favorite of dirt late models and marine endurance competitors. Sustained high temperature has little affect on the strength properties of stainless steel so components made from this material should have a longer life expectancy than similar components made from aluminum.
