4 tec thrush bearing question. Any one ever modify the block to take a better bearing
I can't believe how they only use half a bearing on each front and rear to keep the crank in place.
They could have made it so the fly wheel hit a pin before it destroys the block. At least then the flywheel and pin could be easily replaced.
Or at least the engine block reused.

It is not really needed for these engines; there isn't much thrust under normal circumstances. Your situation came from the prop coming loose which is an extraordinary amount of force.
BTW, did you go back to the dealer that didn't tighten your impeller properly? Go ask them what they tightened it to. If they look it up and tell you 59 lbs, take them to small claims court, as this value is wrong. (should be 92 ft lbs)
