Jp3 inspection !!!
« on: April 21, 2019, 07:16:16 AM »
Hi all slowly getting it to bits .  It's looking much better .. but
I have found a loose crankshaft timing gear . I did not want to take out the crankshaft but it looks like it will have to come out to fix the timing gear I suspect it will have a worn out key . Not looking forward to getting it out . I only have one shoulder that works properly .  I am thinking of remove flywheel and putting it on it's end and pulling out the crankshaft with the forklift . It's big and ugly .  What do you think about this .

That's not good, because if it has been run like this for any length of time, it will have worn the corresponding area on the crankshaft.

If so this will be expensive to put right, let me know what you find out, as I may be able to help you out with some under size main bearings and crankshaft timing gear.

Good luck!
