You cannot be sure by looking. The fillet on the rod journals must be felt to verify.

Learn something everyday. You mean the indentation between the edge of the journal surface and the wall isn't called the rolled filet? I thought I have seen a crank without that indentation and I was under the impression that it was a regular crank.

Why do you have to feel it? Can't one visually determine that there are not filets and brand it a non-turbo crank??

What will help me (and probably a few other) is a picture of NA crank so I can compare visually the two... if that is possible.

I just want to confirm that the crank I got at home which I pulled out of an 83 Riveria TTYPE turbo motor is the real thing!! I've been told that it should be a turbo crank.... if it's the original motor & crank.

ps: steve.. this may sould like a dumb question but what are "filet"

Look at the above picture...particular the rod journal just to the right of the one with the arrow pointing at the fillet.

You see that the fillet is pressed down as a groove below the surfce of the bearing surface on each side of the bearing surface?

Does your crank have these fillets, grooves, or indentations?

If it does, it is a good crank.
