The only Holden 6s with steel cranks were Grey motors and Red motors prior to April 1967. After that the 186 X2, 186 S and 186 XU-1 were also fitted with a steel crank.
Cast Crank Performance:
Peter Brock won Bathurst in a 202 XU-1 which had a cast crank, they can't be that bad.

If you have them side by side, the steel crank has somewhat rounded edges and the cast crank has more square edges. End of submission by Circlotron.
