The new Callies Performance Products catalog has arrived in time for the PRI trade show in Indianapolis! You can pick up a copy of the catalog at our booth (#4615) at the PRI trade show or you can download a copy from our website.
Mechanical Fatigue Solutions (MFS), a division of Callies Performance Products, has been established to provide objective laboratory testing of any component subject to fully reversed bending or torsional fatigue. Everything from engine components to mounting brackets can quickly be evaluated. This capability is being used by Callies to develop the strongest cranks on the market, and is now available as an independent source for fatigue testing of your component design.
A modified heat treat cycle developed at Callies Heat Treat Department for the Ford Big Block 460 crankshaft produces an optimal microstructure and delivers a significant improvement in mechanical properties.
The Callies Modified Heat Treat Cycle delivered a noticeable improvement over the as received condition AND exceeds the minimum AISI requirements.
Callies now offers high quality domestically produced Magnum crankshafts for the Ford 460 – 429 engine families. These crankshafts are machined from high quality forgings that are heat-treated and metalurgically certified at our facility. Magnum Ford 460’s are counterweighted to balance bob weights up to 2400 grams without the use of heavy metal. We are confident in the ability of our Magnum 460’s to easily withstand the rigors of a 2,000 HP engine.

The Compstar Ford 302 crankshafts are consistently the easiest balancing crankshaft of its type available today. These Ford 302 crankshafts are finished to the same standards that have made Compstar the most trusted name in High Value crankshafts. Compstar 302’s are nitride heat treated for wear and durability. These crankshafts can be purchased in a variety of strokes to create the displacement you need. Standard features on all Compstar 302’s are large .125 journal radii, four drilled rod journals and counterweights contoured to your specific connecting rod length. Compstar 302’s are available with either Ford or Chevy SBC rod journal configuration.
Ultra H-Beam connecting rods are High Value American made engine components. Ultra H’s are forged from the same premium 4330 material as our entire Ultra line. Savings resulting from an easy to manufacture design are passed directly on to you. The Ultra H design ensures the geometry of these critical components will remain true under high tensile and compressive load situations.
Every Ultra H-Beam is made with the following components Bolts: 7/16” Ultra (modified H11) steel Pin Bushings: AMS 642 Aluminum-Silicon Bronze Alloy
Callies Ultra billet crankshafts are intended for use in cutting edge applications where innovation is a must. To ensure absolute geometric consistency every Ultra billet crankshaft is ADCOLE inspected. This process provides valuable data used to verify that the part you get is exactly what you ordered. Each Ultra billet cranshaft is uniquely machined with our Ultra-Shed counterweight profiles. The Ultra-Shed leading edge profile gently moves oil away from the oncoming rod journal while the directional trailing edge directs oil away from the oncoming counterweight. Our Aero-Shed super finish will give you a crankshaft that is totally stress-riser free and incredibly aero efficient. When the Ultra-Shed and Aero-Shed processes are combined the result is a crankshaft with the lowest coefficient of drag in the industry. Ultra billets are produced from low carbon – high nickel steel that receives multiple heat treatments. When performed on our specialty steel, Callies heat treat processing yields a crankshaft with high core hardness, stiffness and fracture resisting ductility.
Ultra connecting rods tailored specifically for the non-offset geometry of the Ford 460 engine are now available. These can be purchased in either 6.700 or 6.800 lengths both with 2.200 BBC journal diameters and widths. All Ultra connecting rods are forged from Para-Pure 4330 Timken steel and completely machined in our Ohio facility. Ultra connecting rods have been gaining wide acceptance for their consistency in precision and the (in-service) stability of their housing bore and pin bore geometries. Both configurations are in stock and ready to ship today. Call our sales team or contact one of our dealers to order yours now!
Compstar Ford 302 Connecting Rod. Produced from the same heat treated and stress relieved 4340 steel as existing Compstar H beam rods, every detail of this highly stressed component has been carefully analyzed to maximize repeatability and dependability. Compstar is currently offering the 302 rod in a 5.400 length with a true 2.123 rod diameter and 1.685 width. For added strength and improved piston availability, Compstar 302 rods feature a .927 wrist pin bore. ARP 2000 bolts are also standard equipment. For more information on this product contact our experienced technical department for guidance on your next Ford 302 build.
Callies Performance Products introduces Ultra Connecting Rods made specifically for High Horsepower Ford 460 CID engines. These connecting rods are machined with the proper tower offset to match this popular engine. Initially available in 6.700 and 6.800 inch lengths and fastened by Ultra bolts from ARP, Ultra Ford BB rods are built for your most severe application. Callies Ultra connecting rods are produced from extremely clean Timken steel that is formulated to our exact specifications. This proprietary steel is forged in Trenton, Michigan, and manufactured 100% in our Fostoria, Ohio facility.
