V07 LD28 Crankshaft - $900 shipped - Back from Machine Shop Ready to be dropped in

Recommended Posts

Took this crankshaft to one machine shop to be metal shot blasted and to another reputable shop to check the bearing surfaces and they recommended that it be cut 0.010in (0.25mm) to be on the safe side due to some pitting on the journal surfaces. Both the main and crankshaft journals have been cut by 0.10in, bearings for it can be found easily RockAuto has the full set for around $60. 


I've attached a bunch of pictures that show the journals and the counterweights. The journals are coated in a protective film from the machine shop and the dots that you will see are small particles that got attached to the sticky protective film and not actually on the journal surface.


It has some some pitting in some of the counterweights which can be seen in a few of the pictures. The machinist said that it was not significant and that since these engines have to be balanced, if any minute weight difference existed due to it then during the balancing process it would be taken care of. 


Between what I paid for the engine, packaging materials, shipping, paypal fees and (expensive) machine work there's quite a few bucks on this. I'm looking to get $900 shipped for it. It'll be very well packed in a wooden box surrounded by PVC paneling with high density foam inside, it will not move. Shipping will be USPS 3-day priority.

Item is located in Puerto Rico. It is currently at a reputable local machine shop having any necessary work being performed. Once I get it back it should be ready to be dropped in and with accompanying paperwork documenting the work performed.

When I dropped it off he said that a polish might do the job but that due to the pitting he would likely cut it for 0.010 undersized bearings just to be sure that the engine would be at 100%.
