fitting my cam and stuff to the engine thats in my car and we started stripping it last nite and noticed a fair amount of play with the crank, moving back andfore (the length of the enigne) and turns out that the bearing on the centre journal have not worn as they should, the one side has but the other side hasnt worn and instead has worn into the crank, creating a big lip. bloody cars :roll:

so its onto stripping engine number 2 and seeing what thats like
