MY NEW 220D MAINS PROBLEMS

Post by SECOND737 » Wed 14 Dec, 2016 12:20 am

HI LADS , I HAVE STRIPPED MY ENGINE DOWN TO DISCOVER THE CENTER MAIN BEARING HAD SPUN BEFORE IT CEASED UP THE ENGINE.
THE MACHINIST WHO SAID WOULD GRIND THE CRANK FOR $180 NOW SAYS I NEED ANOTHER BLOCK AS THE BEARING SIDE PLAY IS TOO GREAT.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
KIND REGARDS ASHLEY

Does anyone have sufficient experience with these engines to help Ashley?

HI LADS,
I HAVE GOOD NEWS THE MACHINIST HAS EVENTUALLY AGREED TO GRIND MY CRANKSHAFT AS BEST HE CAN.
ALSO CHRIS FROM MB SPARES HAS GIVE ME PRICES FOR BIG END BEARINGS AND MAINS ALMOST HALF THE PRICE FROM VEALE'S.
AND GREAT THAT THEY HAVE A NEW OIL PUMP AT $220 AS MINE IS SHOT.

Please don't shout at us Ashley, since your computer seems to be stuck on "caps lock" :laughing6:

You will find that the generic car parts stores (Repco, veal's Supercheap) cannot really help you as this is way out of their range.

MBspares is your saviour, and sometimes you will have to go abroad.

Also, can you put your details in your profile? That way local people might be able to give advice on who to approach etc..
