Spare 4.2 crankshaft STD journals, needs at least a polish…SOLD

Buyer pays shipping.

I just sent you a Personal Message about one of the items you have for sale. .

Better pictures of crank. Still available
STD size, may polish to stay standard.

If no appreciable ovality or taper, they look like a good polish will suffice.

Don’t pass up pulling the galley plugs.

Crank sold, other parts available.

No kidding on galley plug removal. Removed the plugs on my 420 crank and was really surprised to find so much sludge in the galleys. The crank was super clean looking. Removal of the plugs was simple. I used a 5/16-18 coupling nut and my impact wrench with socket. They all came right out.

Anyway let me know if you need any of these parts I have listed above.

Timing cover cleaned up. $30.00
Oil pump cleaned and checked clearances lobe was .005, rotor to body .007 $25.00.

Oil pump no longer available. Timing parts with dampers, and tensioner. Most dampers/chain guides and two hydraulic tensioners in good used condition. $40 for all plus shipping.

Hi Jagman,

If still available, I,d take the the timing gear with the cover.

Would sent to SC.

Kind regards,

Martin Schrerz

Available I’ll send PM.
