The crankshaft has been ground 10 Thou undersize, and new bearing shell's fitted. Clearance is 0.03mm, and new blots and nut's are yet to be fitted. Rods must still be finally polished to remove all scratches, then shot peened to stress relieve. We will also make some attempt to balance them. The crank oil strainer, still has the be removed and cleaned. This will involve some drilling and destruction of the existing plug. the crank grinding cost R260 Rand.
