Pitted shaft

Rich Swingewood /

Hey,

What do you if your crankshaft is pitted were the seals run, machine it down and then resleeve it or try and clean it up as much as possible and hopefully it seals? To replace it is just not economical and sachs engines are like hens teeth actually any moped engine is hard to come by.

Cheers

Cheers guys,

Sorry only checked the posts now,I will take some pics in the next couple days.

Over here in Australia, they are not so easy to come by, that is the whole problem. Don't really want to spend to much money it .

I did not think of just sleeving it and going up a size in a seal.

Cheers

Rich
