01WR426 small end rod galling...
Posted June 09, 2001 - 07:09 PM
I just pulled my 01wr426 apart to send Eric Gore my cylinder for the O.S. bore connection.
Surprise, surprise when I got the head off.
The center intake valve has been clipping the edge of the piston cutout leaving a shiny rolled corner on the piston...
The small end of the rod is also starting to gall.
The piston pin is definetly toasted.
The book says .016-.039" freeplay at this junction.
This appears to be a misprint.
I would personally set it up at .0015-.002"...It is at .0015"...This is actual measured clearance, the manual is a bit ambiguous here. It doesn't call out how they are applying their dimensioning to reality.
I hate designers...Just give me a drawing I will make it.
Has anyone seen these symtoms/problems on a stock bike?
Any insight would be considered.

What were the symptoms, sounds that made you liik into it?

I disassembled it to get a Gore big bore.
Look at what I found.
Kinda hard to warranty something that I took apart.
Or that has no symptoms.
I am just seeing what I see.
I will certainly clay it upon reassembly.
The wrist pin also took the brunt of the galling.
I believe a new wrist pin and a light ball honing is going to straiten that out.
I was curious if there was a history of rod problems on this motor.
