Hey guys,

I am wondering if anyone knows the parts number and/or the proper name for "the big gasket that goes between the two halves of the engine", haha. I am planning to split the case and replace my crankshaft with another one I found (I suspect mine has bad bearings) and I would like to order this gasket. I've seen kits with everything but they are kinda pricey.

Thanks!

P.S. is there any reason why putting my pistons on an another crankshaft wouldn't work? Or any other parts/issues I should consider? Haven't done anything like this before and am trying to get rid of an engine knock on a tight budget.
No gasket.

You simply cannot do these engines on a tight budget.
You WILL need the whole gasket set for a start, as both the rear covers and the front cover have to come off along with both the heads.
Then you are into matching up main bearing and conrod clearances to the correct bearing shells. No point in trying to use the old shells, by the sound of your engine!
So you have 14 shells at around $17 -$23 EACH for a start. If you can get them!

( I have many conrod shells and a few mains if you decide to go that route)
