thanks for the link. that there just might be the route i take.
when you received the block did you put a mic on everything to make sure it was 100% what you bought as for quality?

man that's terrible. how long it take ya to put 7k on motor? if it hasnt been too long and you got a good shop to build motor you should be able to get eagle to hook ya up. wheres your redline set? those 2 bolt mains are scarin me just lookin at 'em. upgrade to 4's it wont cost ya that much.

i never said his 2 bolts were the reason his crank failed. ive seen 2 bolts with 550 horse live and ive seen em with 400 die. for peace of mind and insurance there is no reason to have a 2 bolt ya got it all apart.2000 red ss: >2" drop, koni adjustables 'n 275 s-compounds all way around, giant brakes, dynatech LT's, borla catback (no plate), t56, tubular everything, HARD TOP, caged, "stock" heads 'n a mean cam. -2* front camber.

mm ya might wanna run around to some shops and tell 'em yer story and that you built motor and see what they can do for ya....if they're nice they may give eagle a call.

Ive got plenty of rep around here with all the shops, I built the motor in my buddies machine shop ( RPM Performance) here in town Which is were the crank was ordered from So I wont have any trouble having somone to back me up.
I would hate to go to court over it. But after adding it up im out about 1800$ worth of damage!! And im not happy Something is gonna happen, just waiting to hear back from my machinist.

not to mention the pain in the johnson that it is to get these motors in n out. they can look at it to see why it failed or make a "claim" as to why it failed. if they admit that it failed cuz of a flaw in steel or workmanship they will foot the entire bill willingly. getting them to admit that is the tough part. have yer buddy's check i thoroughly.

Ya it is no fruit cake putting it in and out!!
If you go back and look at the pics I posted of the snout that broke. It is In the MEAT of the Journal, There is NO possible way that crank should ever for any reason break there. Unless you are over powering the crank, Which was Not the case here. Hell it maybe out down 320-360WHP as it was due to it not being tuned. And it was rated for 600hp. IMO its just a bad part and I should get a new motor out of it. But i know with my luck thats not going to happen.

you droppin it from the bottom or pullin it from top? or is it even in an f-body
11-03-2008, 02:32 PM #35
Im pulling it from the top!! Keeps me away from all the ABS brake crap when pulling it from the bottom. Ive got it down to 2hrs and the motor is setting in the floor LOL
11-03-2008, 02:48 PM #36
nice. i like to pull mine from bottom so i can wrench with everything in front of me rather than snakin my arms all over the place unboltin tranny and what not in the car. ive done top pulls too ya sound like you got that down nice though.
11-03-2008, 05:37 PM #37
ya the tranny bolts on top are easiest for me lol, But I also don't have a lift so it kinda makes it hard for the bottom drop.

for sure it sucks with jacks. i got jacks.....can be kinda sketchy but i bought real long armed jacks for the job.

well we spoke with eagle. they wanna inspect the crank. so im sure its gonna take forever for me to get results
i hate dealing with companies. seems like it takes them forever!!

I'd DEFINITELY get a Scat at the very least. I'd probably go with a Callies though. Can't beat em...Think of it like this, if you went with one of them from the start, you wouldn't have had this happen and not to mention, if they stick you with the bill, then it would have more than paid for itself.
Also, I'm guessing your running Eagle rods as well? If so, GET THEM OUT NOW! I've heard of dozens of problems with them, and I wouldn't wanna go through this another 7k miles later when a rod ends up going through the block.
