    crank washer went out!!!

    The crank washer went out causing the #3 cylinder to get damaged! Took off the cylinder last night and those were our findings. Just had the crank trued and welded less than 6 hours ago, and now I have to take the whole thing back apart.

    looks like it is only a 6 dollar part... Man I hate that I'm going to have to take the whole motor out for a 6 dollar part, but I suppose the crank being trued and welded saved it from further damage.

    anyone know about how much this repair is going to cost?

    It's the washer right next to the bearing on the foward side of the rod.

    BTW,

    Jessie, Thanks for comming over to help out.

    Not sure on price but it def. looks like a bearing took a shit on you. It looks like the remains of a piston pin bearing. I'm no expert but Thats what it looks like to me.

    Now that i think about it I bet its the rod bearing on the crank end of the rod.

    Thats ugly James. Those look like needle bearings laying in the crankcase oil holes. Most likely the water intrusion from the other weekend took its toll on the crank.

    crankworks is probably all backed up this time of year....probably just as better just order a new trued crank from ProTec

    no way im ordering a new crank, don't have that kind of cheese.

    llike I said I didn't take a pic of the crank bearing, but it's the washer on the side of the crank bearing that tore up. the crank bearing looks fine

    can I send it to crank works? and if so can they put some kind of heavy duty bearings on it, or do I need to buy a new crank?

    The bearing going bad is most likely what took out the washer. If one was damaged the others will soon follow. Crankworks does a great job but a new one trued and welded isn't much more.
