crankshaft size and weight
« on: 24 June 2020, 05:21 PM »
I had to move the crankshaft of my M110 and found I couldn't do it myself. I can almost lift a 50KG cement bag by myself, on a good day, but I needed a second person to help me carry it together.
is that normal?
Did the workshop lose my own crank and handed me a ships engine crank instead?
Are these supposed to be THIS heavy?

Yes, the M100 crank is even heavier. A reconditioned spine is usually required after moving them.   :D
