Default Re: Tired of Using a Torch to Bend Cranks.

i use a 6' long pipe and a crack in the cement under my shed. no heat involved.

wedge the crank under the shed, put the pipe over the other arm, and it bends easy peasy japaneasy.

i could probably bend the crank into a straight line with enough pressure.
