Here is an interesting comparison of cranks.

Left to right

'35 Pierce Arrow stroked 8. Notice the cast counterweights

'33 Pierce Arrow 8, notice the heavy bolted and welded
counterweights

'38 Packard Twelve. Counterweights but precisely attached
and balanced. Beautiful piece of machine work. Shorter
than the Pierce 8's but 100 cubic inches bigger

'71 Morgan +8 (aluminum Buick/Rover 215 V8) Impressed by
how short and compact it is. It is almost as short as
the 4 cylinder next to it

'65 Morgan +4 (Triumph TR3/4)
