    How many hours can you get out of a rod bearing. Before you need to start worrying about it


    Thank you

    I ran a 1996 blaster that I bought brand new for 8 years before selling it still running great and starting on 1-2 kicks every time, it had to have thousands of hours on it. that was bone stock with the oil injection
    good oil and regular air filter cleanings are key

    I found a blaster motor with 25 to 30 hours on the bottom end and been seating for 6 to 8 years . Was going to redo the bearing and seal not the crank.

    Thank you

    I thought you posted rod bearing
    Cant hurt to change crank bearings and seals.them you know what you got.but you will have to split cases to change the crank bearings.
