Often times these threads ask questions that doesn't completely cover the total work needed.

Look at this analysis.

This engine has already gone through turning the crank once.

Now it needs it again according to his machine shop.

But we are rejecting his machine shop's suggestion the crank needs replacement.

Yet we are accepting the machine shop's inspection of the block.Well atleast that fact it isn't cracked.

Me??. The question I have is if we reject the machine shop's suggestion of a replacement crank,why would we accept that this block doesn't need a line bore now what would be a third time being repaired for bearings??. Rains down heavy on me is WHY??. What is creating all these bearings to be chewed up??. Is his crank bent??. Again before the third time isn't a charm,WHY??.
