Hello all,

I disassembled my engine few days ago and discovered a damaged thrust bearing. I was told that the clutch thrust was responsible of this.

My concern is that not only the bearing was damaged but the suface on the crankshaft as well :(

My idea is to remachine the crank but i need to provide a new bearing (half moon) with a different size of course to compensate the gap after machining.

First problem is that the oversized bearing seems not to exist, only standard one. So i might have to do one in brass or similar auto lub. material.

Second problem, what is the tolerance gap between the bearing and the crank surface ???? :confused:

I searched everywhere on the web and couldn't find anything about this.

If one of you could have an idea it would be greatly appreciated !
Cheers
Fred

Thank you very much. ;)
