 Crankshaft balancing Post Reply Engineering Forum
 Posted by: proace ® 07/18/2004, 23:29:50 Author Profile eMail author Edit When balancing a crankshaft would I be counterweighting for the crank pin and its distance from center or weight of the crank pin plus connecting rod, wrist pin and piston? Thanks

The unbalanced force created by the pin, con rod and piston has to be calculated and it should be balanced by counter weights. The formula being F = M*R*W*W.    W = rpm, R = Distance of the centre of mass of the counter weight from the crak shaft centre line. M = mass of counter weight. So the mass of the counter weight varies inversely proportional to the distance from centre line.
