That engine sprocket did not want to come off.



What the hell is up with this myth that BMW's easy to work on yeah right Taking this engine apart was a total pain in the ass. You need a "special" tool for just about everything, and nothing came apart willingly.

Only question is on the right side rod bearing. It's not smooth enough to where I feel comfortable reinstalling it. So do I replace the the rod bearing and leave the crank alone or do I take the crank to a chop and have them grind it down to match the new road bearing? The crank feels fine to the touch.

The front main looks ok but the back is boarder line as well as the thrust washers bearings.

decision decisions do I replace all the bearings or just the rod bearing decision decisions I guess it's up to how much more money I want to dump into this thing.
