Resently tore into a WD and found the crank in poor condition, Purchased a good standard crank and installed it. Found the rods to be at only .001 clearance. latter was told that I needed a fifty dollar shim kit. The motor did not have any shims when I tore it down. Is there any way I can get around the shims or do I just have to suck it up.

you could try using plastguage. if it is to tight you will have to use shims. some of the one i rebuilt we had the rods machined so you didn't need shims. but if there is nothing awrong with your rods the shim kit is going to be cheaper.

Now boys, this is neither the time or place for that kind of attitude. Both of you go straight to your rooms and don't come out until you can be civil to one another. Grandpa TED.

Thanks for the tip Jason. I used plasticgage, and found the clearance to be to little. I guess I will have to go to the shims. I have a chance to purchase a WD 45 motor, Its been in the fence row for a long time. The rocker Arm has a strange shield on it that is not on my WD. That what makes me think it is a 45. Only $150.00.

Thanks for the tip, Now I know I have a 45, just picked it up at a salvage yard, I dont know what kind of condition it is in but it is a start. I just wanted to get away from shiming the Rod caps, Had some bad experance with that. Thanks again.
