Hello. Summer vacation is here and I finally tore down the 69 tr25w which after the last ride vibrated so badly I was in pain. When I pulled the piston there was considerable side play and I assumed the big end bearing was shot. And after tear down I found a small flake missing from it. The crank itself felt quite smooth but I assume that it will need to be reground when the undersized replacement goes in. But my question is, that when I split the case the crank came out stunk in the timing side and I needed to tap it out with a mallet. Both bearings are one the crank and the manual
shows they should be in the case instead. Is this normal? also the Rupert book suggests using tire irons to pry them off but if I do this will muck em up so i need to replace them? any suggestions?
