The crank is not going to cause the condition you describe, unless the engine is running.Got busy at work couldn't get it done today, may snag a dial indicator Thursday and check it yet.
Work can get in the way of the fun stuff!
Lmao3 pages worth of comments, and not 1 solution LOL.
Throw the chain away and put a new one on if you cant identify or fix the tight spot in it. Been there done that.
I think since hes changed the chain as well .Roll the axle no chain rolls perfect and quick for a long time, Drop the chain on can hear it laboring to turn over.
Changed motor mount
Rear sprocket hub
Rear rotor * bent *
Swapped clutches from 2 to my 3 disk
Rolling the axle has a tight spot the chain rises and then lowers as it gets past that point, At a loss. Tomorrow measuring run out on crank shaft at work.
thoughts, ideas, I am running out of ideas
Perhaps we should always throw away anything that challenges us.
Or hire someone to correct our problems.
Of course, then no one is able to troubleshoot anything.
But the market is wide open!!!!
Seriously, most problems can be diagnosed by being honest about what we have actually done, without short cutting steps.
No one likes to admit they missed something.
I usually discover this after being adamant I did it right.
I think since hes changed the chain as well .
Maybe a non issue .
Whack it with a hammer at the tight spot...
Challenge us? Its a $20 chain. Guy has been given every idea under the sun (all of which he tried) except just replacing the chain.
I dont know about you, but I don't spend thousands of dollars on tires, engine rebuilds, entry fees, fuel, and time away from home just to have a DNF because I was too cheap to replace a $20 chain.
