Often times keystock is plated as well, so that is another thing to look out for. I used 1/4 x 1/2" HRS for my 10-Wheeler and used the stock Allen Models cast bronze crossheads and have no problems after 7 years of running. Sure was nice not having to do much machining on those parts!
This should have read CRS! Oops! Y'all probably wondering what the heck is he talking about!
It shouldn't have offered much confusion, as HRS could certainly be used in place of CRS. It's just that both of them offer minimal wear resistance.
