Bryan Posted July 2, 2022 Report Share Posted July 2, 2022 Think when I stuck the wood block in the #3 cylinder to keep the crank from turning, to get the crank nut off (old post), I warped the crank. I know I bent # 3 rod, but replaced it. I know the top of the D46 block is perfectly flat, I measured it. Thought it might not be parallel to crank, but after checking, think crank is warped. Been storing crank horizontal on trunk of my 58 Dodge. Varying opinions on internet whether this will warp a crank. I took a # 1 rod (odd), put a piston on it without rings, and installed it on # 1, 3 and 5 journals. Measured piston to deck clearance, center, front & back of piston. Then I took the same piston, took same bearing inserts, and put them on a #2 rod and checked 2, 4 and 6. I used my dial gauge to get TDC on each piston. Kept creeping crank back and forth several times looking where dial didn't move, across about .002-3 on gauge. Here's what I got. # 1 - .012" below deck, center and front (pretty even). #2 - .010" ABOVE DECK on front, flush at rear. #3 - .009" bd, center & front (even). #4 - .000" flush front and rear. #5 - .003" bd center & rear, #6 - .006" Above Deck at front, flush at rear. Got another car in the woods at my father's house an hour away..oh well. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
