Title: om617.950 crankshaft
Post by: jtwoods4 on 19 August 2019, 03:52 PM
Hey guys I'm rebuilding and om617 engine that I destroyed a few years ago. Engine ran out of oil due to failed oil filter housing cap. Anyway I'm completely disassembling the engine and rebuilding it. Just got done inspecting the disassembled engine and there is some very minor damage on the crankshaft rod journal 1 and 3. It's very minor but it turns out these crankshafts cannot be ground unless you nitride treat them in a salt bath afterwards.

So now I'm looking for a replacement crankshaft for my om617.950 engine. Anybody know where a stash of NOS crankshafts could be? I know they're out there somewhere.

Depending on your timetable, I was looking at pulling apart the motors I have sometime in the next two or three months.
