    Yeh those aint lookin too healthy lol. Quite a bit of scoring. If you plan on usin the crank again you'll need to get it ground no doubt.

    Yipe!!

    :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: < 1 YIPE! for every main bearing :eek1: :eek1: :eek1: :eek1: :eek1: :eek1: :eek1: :eek1: < 1 EEK! for every rod bearing


    Looks like you ran it with no oil pan!--thats what happenned to the last set of bearings I saw like yours--a guy ripped the oil pan off on a speed bump,and kept on driving till the crank would turn no more....:frown1:



    Do you plan on saving it,or is it a candidate for a coffee table???:confused:

    Just 1 bearing F-ed up, the crank, and 1 rod. Yeah, just spun a bearing for some reason..? Who knows. I will probably have the crank turned and the rod fixed, throw a new set of bearings in the bottom and call it a day.
