I don't understand it either. The old ones that I used could be re used a few times. I wondered if I could maybe get better quality. Or buy a bunch of them and use new ones every time. They are cheap so no loss. Just annoying.
Been there done that with the Bearing Cap locator PIN.
The BEST way to fix the pushed thru PIN is to remove ALL Parts from the CASES.
Insert the PIN and the Bearing Cap.
Break Off the Cracked CHIP and push the PIN until fully down and seated in the Bearing Cap.
Then have a GOOD TIG Welder Cover over the Pin.
It will be 1005 Permanent the TIG won't stick to the Pin it will still be removable.
Hi Yender. It does make for a bad day. That suggestion does seem to be the best fix. I wish that I had a tig welder. Only mig. I have seen those repaired but I'm going to change the upper engine case. I have a couple spares. I think the spring-loaded slide was the culprit for the shifting problem but I was hoping to spot the smoking gulln that caused the metal flakes in the oil. This far I'm not seeing anything that looks abnormal.
