well it was showing usual signs of the bottom end going so it was taken to the performance centre ( my garage ) and we knew at this point it was gonna get a good old going at so just cracked straight on and started the tear down .. engine out and stripped down took the sump and oil pick up off , the ends of the rods on one of number 1 piston and found this

have not had the crank checked yet mate but as you go down from 1 to 4 they seen to get worse


this is the 3rd set they were welded together on the shaft had to break them apart with a hammer and screwdriver the picture is not great but they are like paper thin and have a sort of lip all the way around each side and the oil holes are just not there any more
