Russ, I have never seen it but I do know that the cast cranks flex a lot more than the forged units under heavy stress like the application your running with your hybrid. With a lot of HP/torqe this could happen.
Yes, we never checked block over beyond the missing
chunk but may be worth a peak. Motor has had it's
moments of speachless terror but doubt we have ever
reached anywhere near the HP others have made.
Good point, never realy looked beyond the fragged
portion of block. Another expensive paperweight to
add to the list of "boy thats realy "F"-ed up" and "
never seen that before" junk pile in back.
Russ, The crank I'm using in the Laser is a 2.2 cb, and I discovered it bent as I recieved it from one of our venders. It had about .006 to .007 runout measured on journal # 3. I magnafluxed it and sent it to Crankshaft Specialties in Memphis, came back PERFECT!.......Don't throw it away, unless you throw it in my dumpster..........Oh ya, You still up for borrowing me that lower two piece intake for a while?
