Crank Balancing in the South East

I appear to a "modular crank" fitted to my 205 - its the first crank I've ever been able to lift out in two pieces

So, new crank needed. The question is, are there any recommendations for someone who can balance a crank in the South East. I know of a couple of good places up past oxford way, but there must be someone in the Surrey / South West London area thats reputable?

Thanks

Jon

You could try Gosnay Engineering on 01708-740 668. They are in Romford.

There is a firm at Biggin Hill airport who balance aero engines. I can't vouch for their work and don't know their details I'm afraid. Perhaps a google search?

Don't forget that if you are having the crank balanced that you need to attach everything that bolts to it, such as the flywheel, clutch, front pulley and damper etc.
