Another Quiz for everyone regarding CRANKSHAFTS.

What's the difference between a crankshaft in a diesel engine
and a crankshaft in a gasoline engine? :-)

Wild guess -- you can probably get away with a cast crank in a gas engine. Probably have to have a forged crank in a Diesel engine.

Fillet design may also be different - undercut versus no undercut.
