    Would you use this crank?

    Bought a 2002 1200XLT w/ a busted engine. Oil line came off rear cylinder. Will need a couple of cylinders/piston, a head, and perhaps a crank. All of measurements appear to be within tolerance although the one rod that ran dry does have a bit more play but it measures .055 inch (less than .08 maximum).

    So it really boils down to the spots on the front race. Obviously got a bit of moisture in there and pitted it up. When you spin the bearing, it runs smooth and I don't feel any bumps, drag, etc.

    Not had to make this decision before so not sure if I can get away with using this crank. Hate to jack up the cost of this rebuild by another $400 but if it fails, it will be much more than that...

    Appreciate your input.

    I would not take a chance on it, that front bearing race is removeable. Crankworks makes a nice replacement bearing for the front. I would send the crank out for rework if it was going in my ski.

    I agree with Oside. No reason to spend the money on the other parts and leave a potential "bomb" unattended to. The re-worked crank is often the best money spent in a rebuild. JMO
