Default Re: Just need a new motor?

The crank bearings CAN be fixed, and it would be cheaper than buying a new engine, but it will require you to split the crankcase, which means you will need to know or understand how to do it (there is a tutorial on it somewhere here on the forum) and also know how to correctly install the new bearings and put everything back together properly (not sure if there is a tutorial on that. Installing a new engine is a little more expensive (I buy replacement engines on ebay, where they are usually the least expensive), but will require far less work. So I suppose its up to you which way you want to go.
