Not sure if hanging an 80 lb. crankshaft on the front end is such a good plan, camshafts I have seen ........

It helps keep the front wheels on the pavement ! Virgil is known to have a lead foot and a tendency to dump the clutch in first gear !

Lead foot, that'a bout right.  LOL.

 

Sometimes a video is worth a thousand words, and perhaps this will explain where I'm sort of going with this build:
