So i just took off the jug and it appears it is the bearing where the piston rod connects to the crankhsaft. There is a lot of play where it connects, i'm assuming that it should be tight. Also on either side of of the piston rod where it connects to the shaft there are what looks like a washer like ring, one of those was ripped off and that appear to be where the metal chunks came from. I was looking at some expanded parts diagrams but i couldn't see either a bearing down there where i mentioned or the rings.
So i guess my questions for you guys are what are they called? so i can look up price.
Would something like this ruin the crankshaft?
Or if you have anything else to add it would be much appreciated.
So i have never messed with anthing on the engine of a sled before so i have a few questions. I pulled off the head and one of the cylinders had small metal chunks in it, and it was able to twist back and forth more than the good side. So i'm thinking it's a rod bearing?
Would something like this mess up the crankshaft too? And can i inspect the crankshaft well enough by just looking at it if i just take off the cylinder and look down in there?
In the manual it looked like i need to pull the engine and i would need a few specilized tools which i don't have. If it is just a bearing could i replace it with out pulling the engine?
I kind of am just acessing the damage to see if i'm going to fix it or try to sell it to someone that has more money than i do to make the repairs.
