Figure 2. Removing or Installing Crankshaft
After the crankshaft has been removed, clean and inspect it thoroughly before reinstalling it in the engine.
Remove the plugs and clean out the oil passages thoroughly with a stiff wire brush. Clean the crankshaft with
fuel oil and dry it with compressed air. Then reinstall the plugs.
Inspect the keyways for evidence of cracks or wear. Replace the crankshaft, if necessary.
If the crankshaft shows evidence of excessive overheating, replace the crankshaft since the heat treatment has
probably been destroyed.
