With the hub installed, I opted to tackle the task of pinning the crank while the engine was on a stand in anticipation of having to do it in the future. Since most of the LS engines don’t have a traditional keyway on the crank hub, this is necessary in supercharged applications to keep the hub from spinning on the crank. The plan is to eventually bolt on a blower, so I figured it’d be easier to tackle now rather than later when the engine is in the truck. There are a handful of kits out there to pin the LS crank, I happened to have the type that pins it from the front rather than the side.
