Blue motor crank weight

Ben Simpson,
can you tell me if the blue motor 2850 has a heavier crankshaft than it's stepbrother the red 173, similar to the blue 3300 does compared to the red 202?
Thank you.

Cheers, Mick.

2850 Cranks have 202 sized main bearings so they will at least be heavier than early 173s which had 186 size mains.

Otherwise the 2850 crank did not get the major rework the blue/black 3.3 cranks did so the difference between early red 173 and blue 2850 Cranks is only slight.

I have taken some pics but can't work out how to post them.
I have done it before but has the site been modified in some way?

Cheers, Mick.
