Welcome to GC. We have a lot of great members here. We’ll get you squared away.
Let 'er rip! Good luck. We like pictures here if you have a chance!got it. The "new" bottom end is sitting in the garage, planning on pulling the motor this weekend, and before I tear it down, I'm going to run a leakdown test to make sure the valves didn't tag the piston when the gear broke loose. As long as that's good, I'll drop my head on the new bottom end, put new rings on the piston, and throw it all back together. Hopefully it works.
OK dumb question time, and possibly this ship sailed a long time ago, but...found the gear on the crankshaft assembly for the timing chain was cracked, allowing it to slip on the crankshaft when trying to turn over. My issue now is the only reference to that part is as part of the entire crankshaft assembly, which is around $420 or so.
I'll see if I can upload a picture.
