    62k miles and one track day too many - need a crank

    spun a bearing by the sound of it of my 97.

    many years since active here, - whats the current state of play, use a SV crank/rods? any years I need to avoid?

    Use either the TLR or SV crank with reconditioned SV rods. I sourced 2 sets of R crank/SV rods last year for about $200 and had the rods done for another $100 so not expensive. Sam and RingIn have several good posts covering all you need.

    quick update, caught one side shells as they went to copper. Lucky the crank was fine, so polished and plastiguaged to 0.042. with 80psi cold ( inaccurate gauge)

    But always a reason and found a small (5mm) piece of flattened alu? stuck in the head that side! No idea know how could have got there. I Last rebuilt 30k ago, and K&N last cleaned about 10k ago. Not holed/ loose? Anyway, assume that stress took that one bearing out. Everything else in excellent shape (66,000miles)
