The last aftermarket crank I bought for myself was a Callies, for a SJ 350 SBC. That was about 10 years ago.

Since then I have used new Eagle (cast), Scat (cast and forged) and used OEM and variuos aftermarket (cast and forged) cranks. No problems/failures to date w/any of them.

FWIW, I believe the problems associated w/Eagle cranks and rods reported years ago have been reduced to a level that's even w/the rest of the field. That said, I always worry about getting some old stock that was returned by someone. That's another reason (along w/ease of returning faulty parts) to deal w/high volume distributors, IMHO.
