Hello again.


I was just wondering were the oilchannel in the crank goes? The oil comes from the generatorcover into the crank but then? con-rod bearing?


Need to know becouse a managed to damage the end of the crankshaft were the oilseal in the generatorcover sits... darn!

it just goes to the big end bearings with 2 outlets 1 to each rod, the crank to case bearings are oiled threw the cases different rout.

So exactly what got damaged and how? Was it dropped on it's crank end or something? You might want to post picks to get repair ideas if you are contemplating a new crankshaft. The alternator cover mounted seal does not look too hard to fix.
