    1997 slt 700 crank

    Well, after inspection of the cyl that blew 2 weeks ago, we got the heads and pistons off, we did notice that one of the copper washers (or whatever they are) that hold the rod assembly on the crank broke off, do you guys know if those are washers or what? Do I need to pull the complete engine off to replace?

    The crankshaft will need a complete rebuild.

    seriously? because of one washer breaking off? I found out its called a thrust washer... do any of you guys know the size of it? can I just replace that one washer? everything else seems fine looks good.

    Item #5 in the image? If so, the crank has to be torn down and put back together to replace the thrust washer. You don't have the equipment to do that do ya? If you do, you may as well install new bearings too while you're at it.

    yea number 5 it is.. and no, I do not have the equipment... I would like to know what caused that washer to break though... kinda scary. Thats a expensive fix to rebuild the crank

    He is more than likely still up north putting an addition on his cabin. I had to wait 5 weeks to get him to do some work for me. Hopefully he finishes the cabin soon and gets back to his "normal" job. You have a pm Brad.
