Ok, I’m gonna pull the rad again (for room) and unhook the slave from the fork. If I can’t move the crank by hand, what next? Would that mean the main caps are over torqued?30 at hot idle is way more than enough. There is nothing impeding flow. The passages in these blocks are huge. You would need to stuff a boulder in one go stop flow. If the backside of the thrust is worn, its always something behind the engine, always. You should be able to take the belt off, grab the balancer and move the crank back and forth, even with musician arms.
I understand that. As you can see, the input shaft is not at issue, and if I take the slave off, there is nothing that CAN be pushing the crank forward. Is there? I don’t know for sure so I’m asking if I’m overlooking something. Anyways, the question is moot till I actually check it again.No it means something behind the engine is pushing the crank forward. You can put an engine on an engine dyno or run stand and run it for 1000 years straight and it will never hurt the thrust bearing, UNTIL you bolt a trans on it. I just try to be the voice of reason and discourage people from chasing boogeymen with regards to thrust bearings.
Yep.Is that a thing? The driveshaft can push the input shaft forward?
I’ve never heard of that before, but like I said, I’m here because I don’t know what the hell is happening with this.
