    I hope to make it. Will be at LZD this weekend. if anyone wants to see a bad cam & lifters and the engine is still split. SB569 in a way was a good thing. And I thought every thing was OK? ken

    I feel your pain! Did you actually have one of the crankshafts manufactured after March, 1997? That is a bummer! I lucked out with the original crank still in the engine. Lycon overhauled it it for me. But, my cam and lifters for the #3 & #4 intake was toast. No cheap way out that I can see. I don't know if the deal is still good for the $2000 crankshaft kit. I would imagine if you had an overhaul with a "questionable" crank, they would honor that now you've had to split the case.

    I had a great time doing the overhaul, but I'm still tracking down oil leaks. I just re-torqued the engine bolts this annual. I noticed that most of the sump nuts/bolts were low on torque as was most of the accessory case bolts. One leak looks to be the prop governor base. Those nuts were low on torque too. None of the upper case half bolts or case through bolts were under torqued. But 6 out of 16 of the 3/8" cylinder hold down stud bolts were low on torque. This is my first torque after 27 hours. I'll do another at 100 hours. A pain to do, but I'm really getting good at removing the baffling.
