ea50 crank arm bushing

hey everyone.

well, its that time of year again. time to get ready for the new season! hooray!. anyways, i had my piston off the other day (puch maxi) and i noticed that the bushing that holds the wristpin to the crank arm is off center. the little brass bushing is so off center that you can see through the little oil hole cut in the bushing.

so, i tried to push it back in but just managed to mess it up a bit. any suggestions? will this pwn my bike if i leave it like this?

thanks everyone!

Re: ea50 crank arm bushing

press

Re: ea50 crank arm bushing

yea if you dont have a press, how do you get the old one out and put a new one in? just found out mine is worn down to the point where the wrist pin can move about 10-15

Re: ea50 crank arm bushing

long bolt w/ nut 2 washers, a socket to fit the bushing but small enough to go trough the wrist pin hole and another socket to fit around the other side of the wristpin hole .. assemble and tighten bolt till pops in or out..

Since it's partially out chase it out with a new bearing, C-clamp or 10mm bold method.

Order a couple one for practicing. Don't forget to drill the oiling hole and clean the burrs on the INSIDE
