Do i need to rebuild motor ? help !
I just won jsra club championship on my 08 ultra250 all cc races GREAT
then it died, literally as i crossed the line in the last moto
previous round i had sucked up crap and had to remove pump to tidy up the prop etc and seemed to be fine after testing ,At the last round was lots of weed on the lake clogged up in first moto and this it what i thought had happened 2 laps from finish in 3rd moto but seemed to clear and as i said then cut out at the finish oil overheat warning came on and would not even crank over . got it home and found prop had came off and trim seal had gone so sorted this (pump shoe a bit nackered tho), changed plugs and fired up before doing oil change it stalled after 5 seconds so fired up again and seems to be idling a bit crap but not terrible .
So gone to do the oil change as i'm doing this i noticed the drive coupler
is not snug so checked and there is alot of movement back and forth on the shaft side .I am not sure if there is meant to be this much movement
Any way got on with the oil change, oil had gone very dark but seemed really thin took the filter off and as some oil trickled out so did a load of silvery bits . i remembered seeing this thread http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthre...t=98680&page=4
so i check for crank movement but doesn't seem to be any
i am wondering if my engine could be nackered due to the prop jamming up
and why there is movement on the drive coupler on the prop shaft side
I don't want to keep using if it could severly screw the motor up ..
any thoughts much appreciated ..sorry for the essay

Grab a screwdriver and see if you can move the crank backwards and forewards, if more than about .5mm pull the donk out.

You have done the thrust washers on your crankshaft,,,and your crank maybe toast to.

yeah i tried this what i found strange is the coupler slid about 10-12mm the other way (towards the pump) is there meant to be this much ??? i am taking my pump out to recheck the shaft and impeller splines are not damaged as it just seems to much movement on the shaft towards the prop.
As said there doesn't seem to be any movement on the crank side and definatly no clunking like in the clip. Also pulleys SEEM to be still aligned so i don't think it has taken a major shunt forward
