Crankshaft
« on: February 26, 2009, 01:00:21 PM »
Anyone have an extra FL250 crankshaft laying around? I am going to do a leak test but I am thinking that the small amount of pitting on my crankshaft right now is causing a lower end leak. Not positive right now put that's where my suspicions are leading. I should know sometime next week. Just preparing for the worst.

none here. If you think the pitting is causing a leak you can fill them with the slow cure JB weld, and polish the seal area of the crank and try again.

Have you had any luck with that technique? On the leak test, what classifies a bad leak, from 15psi to what in what amount of time? Thanks

I had same prob. Those cranks are two pieces pressed together. I got a n.o.s. half crank on Ebay for 25.00 with ship. It did take a while to find.
