Re: Big-end bearings for 200T: KS quality...


Just a short follow-up on the bearing story:

	Bearings were replaced on Thursday. All the old bearing
	shells had already lost the "white metal" parts.

	Symptoms of faulty bearings first noticed as a "clacking"
	sound (louder than the hydraulic lifter noise) coming
	from the rear of the engine (mostly, but at one point the
	entire left side was "clacking") with the engine  speed
	taken up to a steady 1600RPM. Also noticable when revving
	up and letting the engine die down to idle.

No problems at all with the KS bearings. Engine feels a bit tighter,
but smoother.

Next, to fix intercooler to intake manifold air hose. Eeek!
