2005 FE550e Rebuild time

Hi guys, time to pull the motor apart as it is making some horrid metallic grinding sounds like a collapsed bearing , so I'm just after some advise on what to look out for and perhaps what are some good upgrades that i can do while the old girl is apart, was thinking about maybe going the 650 kit if it is possible do you guys know? maybe a rekluse clutch for all the tight technical track we do. your expertise is very much appreciated.


Cheers

Shoey

I fix them but im on the other side of the country to you, i have done some for WA customers they just boxed the engine and sent it over. I wasnt over expensive to do so.
Whatever you do just dont use genuine mains. I have the brand i use for sale.
Sounds like your mains are gone just hope you caught it early enough and did no other damage.

Over here they let go it's not just race use either. I know of a few engines that have gone to OrangeBerg that haven't been raced, I think us Aussies are the only ones that can ride them properly, if ya just putt around on them they last for ever.
