    have the crank checked before you throw the bearings at it.

    Crank, rods, and the installer/operator. Damn, you had to hear and smell that before she let loose. If you need crank and rods, I have an extra set laying around.

    Do you by chance have an intake. I need a single plane, standard deck, 4150 flange intake for a simple project.

    Finished tearing it down. Everything else looks good. This was an unknown engine. Possible reasons for 5 & 6 to go and the rest look good?

    You said unknown engine so cld be possible that journal was bigger than the rest after it being turned or maybe bent crank/crack

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    OK.......You need to take this pile to a repeatable machine shop in your neck of the woods (Sacto, Grass Valley or Reno area) that can give you the straight facts on what you have!! The chances of the crank being any good are nil, also the pistons on those same holes were smacking the head, so as I see it minimally: a Crank, 2 rods, 2 pistons, oil pump, check out heads, rings, bearings, gaskets, vat & mag, hone block, check weights for balance, etc.

    Hope this helps.............. John (208) 731-7999

    Thanks Spudpilot. I had every intention of doing what you suggest. Not quite understanding the derogatory remarks. But hey, us old guys can roll with it. That is how we learn.

    Sorry, wasn't trying to be derogatory with my input, but felt it getting a bit stagnated as to what you were suppose to do!

    I apologize.................. I'm a day older tomorrow so I guess I'm cranky!!!!!!!

    Cheers & Good Luck!
