I have some pictures of my 93 phazer crankcase. I'm trying to figure out if my crankcase is bad or not. The screwdriver is pointed at the bad area. It is also pointed at the clutch end of the case. It is also the bottom half of the case. Any input would be great.
tough to make an internet call on that, but i see excessive chatter marks. usually they appear as gouges more than raised. those may easily sand out and clean up with some emery and you may never have another issue.
i would suggest taking them somewhere you trust and get an opinion based on someone actually seeing and feeling.
Good news on the crankcase. I had my local guy look at the crankcase and he said to smooth it out a little to eliminate any ruff spots, and I should be good to go. He said he has seen a lot worse and guys would run them like that without any problems.
Finally something positive on this project. That'll save me 100 bucks.
good to hear! heres another tip that i have found successful to reduce the bearing chatter is to simply take a punch and randomly make some indentations on the case where the bearings ride. seems to reduce the amount of chatter for some reason.
