Cranky Mr2 Help!


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Im new to this forum, hope you can help.

I have a 92 G-Ltd which (Im ashamed to say) ran low on oil and (I think, ) has eaten its big end bearings. (knocking on start up then a quite idle and knocks above 2500rpm)

Question is, is it a more viabile option to replace the crank and bearings or just replace the whole engine.

I have a quote from a company in Ireland to supply and fit a recon unit (1400 euro).

Any suggestion greatly appreciated

if it's ran low on oil then it may well have done more damage than just the bottom end. Safest option to sort it out in 1 go is to put a new engine in there.

it's a lot less work than rebuilding, replacing parts - then putting it all back together, trying it and finding you forgot to replace something else.

New motor - does it all in 1 hit.

Id agree.

Low oil could have caused other hiden damage, that may arrise a few more miles after repair.

The crank would have to be re-ground, and new shells, and bearings etc etc, and your cams may well have been starbed of oil...and who knows !!
