could be a bad head gasket pushing compression into the coolant. If I was you I'd stroke it

True, mine had 133k on it before i decided to rebuild and has no signs of cranwalk when i measured endplay before tear down.

133k and only had .004 endplay, now with new stuff in her i measured only .002 very happy

Re: A sad sad story... The latest victim of the dreaded crankwalk...

ok so now I'm confused, Blackcrow said his crankshaft had .0015 of play but talon69 said his had .004 before and now its down to .002 which both numbers are higher?

Re: A sad sad story... The latest victim of the dreaded crankwalk...

I think blackcrow meant .015. If you dont have a 6 bolt by the midwest meet, I'll bet that we can find someone to bring one to the meet and someone from Illinois or Michigan can get it back that far for you. I think you should be able to stroke it for ~$1300-$1600 depending on the deals you get and like $200-$400 less for a 2.0 setup.

Re: A sad sad story... The latest victim of the dreaded crankwalk...

Yeah, sorry I was at work all day and didn't have a chance to catch up on this thread... Isn't 15 thousandths .0015?... Or is it .015? My math skills are lacking since high school was so long ago.

Ahhh, alrighty... In that case it was .015 lol.

I got a new heater switch valve and a thermostat for the firebird and thought it was gonna be ok until I saw a ton of coolant coming from the top of the motor underneath the intake manifold... It turns out that instead of blowing a head gasket it must have cracked the top of the thermostat housing... Soooo I'm hoping tomorrow morning autozone will have one in stock when I go in. I gotta get that thing running for work tomorrow... Damn I'm hating cars so bad right now...

Re: A sad sad story... The latest victim of the dreaded crankwalk...

It looks like I am going to have a stock used JDM six-bolt in my '95 for a little over $2000. It could be less but I have bought some extras for the install.
