you could ask Mike S and Bibs, those have the factory background connections  ..the factory clearly mentioned that the crank can be 'reworked' to two different size grades. And as the partnumbers do exist -maybe a batch of oversized bearing shells is still left in the AfterSales-parts departement.


to name the things if I see them, that's what I call integrity..

I know Mike S. had some oversized bearings made by ACL a couple of years back. They were "made from" some other bearings but without the notches to index into the bearing caps. Oversized bearing are hard to find.

I am working on a source for these. I have the bearings themselves.. but I'm just working on getting the machining done to them to make them fit correctly. (they are too wide)

Modifying esprit's.. now that's fun..

PS... I AM NOT A CERTIFIED MECHANIC.. I Have chosen to help those in need, in the past and must not be construed as being a certified technician.
