Re: PSA difficult to find oil leak at motor / trans. Flyweel bolts, clean your crank

Haha I’ll work on that. And I’m not sure on the loctite. Maybe I was shy with it? I have a feeling that because I didn’t clean the old debris out of the threads or off the hub that it left a path for...

Re: Help! Did rod bearings. Now a gravely/scratchy noise. with video

Turn the motor by hand slowly and see if you can better assess / feel the resistance. Don’t start it again.

Did you look on dipstick for excessive metal shavings in oil?
