FRP crank shaft - suggestions required

    I need technical help like type of fibre, resin and lay up procedures to be folfollowed so that I get the strength equal to steel. I have not done any market anlaysis. with my curiosity and own interest trying to replace the crank shaft of an old engine with FRP. At present I do not have any idea about going for a business with that. I need to know the viability of this project. If you can share your experience/knowledge it will be useful to me.
    Thanks for the reply😁

    Yes, you are practical, but initially they may not take this risk. I decided to replace the crank shaft of an old engine with FRP, run the engine and anlyse the performance. I think it is worth a try.

    Thanks for the reply.😁
