well the planned prevention rebuild turned into a nightmare. started as a new piston kit, hot cams 1, and fmf pipe w/ jetting to match. well got it tore down today and was suprised to see a hotrods rod and possibly crank too. well that suprise turned to disappointment when the rod free play was out of spec. it doesn't move up and down at all, and the side to side at the crank is in spec, but the top of the rod moves roughly 2-2.5mm and should be, by yamaha specs, .8-1mm. so since he's broke now, he can't afford to fix it, and wants to just throw it back together with the cam and run it. i don't like the idea, and i'm doin the work. but its his quad. anyway if its thrown back together the worst that could happen is it siezes and the crank needs replaced, which it already does. and possibly broken valves. so could this cause more problems other than what is already known? he has like 3 parts motors with various parts to make a frankenmotor, but this is the only good case. thrown chains on the others cracked all of their cases. ok, blah blah blah, can you find the question in this one? :lol:
