Auxilary Drive Shaft seizure

Re: Auxilary Drive Shaft seizure

unfortunately you are goinig to have to pull the motor out and apart to fix this problem. The auxilary shaft tunnel will have to be bored out to fit a oversize outside diameter bearing which will have to be machined on a milling machine. This is not a uncommon problem as I have done about 6 of these at work.You can buy the bearing from ACL or just let an engine reconditiner fix this for you. And as for getting the shaft out? Just remove the timing cover,drop the timing chain off, remove the sump,dizzy,oil pump drive shaft,thrust plate for the auxilary shaft and using a hammer and long punch hit the shaft out and more than likely throw the shaft away!! PS. remember to check that the "good" auxilary shaft spins freely and does not score up the new bearing.

Re: Auxilary Drive Shaft seizure

Re: Auxilary Drive Shaft seizure

Chances are its destroyed the bearings, possibly even spun them, and in turn the shaft would most likely be damaged,
If you just take it out and put it back in, you can experience loss of oil pressure, knocking noise, and possibly seizure again. Not to mention metal filings floating throughout the engine.

Re: Auxilary Drive Shaft seizure

You might find u can not even get the shaft out, if its ciesed up, did it breaak the gear of the front of the shaft... They dont run a bearing factory in there, but if the tension of the chain is to tight (tensioner not relased) or there is an oil pressure problem, The shaft can actualluy melt its self into the block. We had a mates 4.0 do this, it snaped the gear of the front when it stoped, we tried all day to get it out of the block and in the end gave up... If you do manage to get it out you will find the surface of the tunnel to be rough and scored, you will def either need to get it tunnel bored and the bearings fitted or turf the block out and start again

Re: Auxilary Drive Shaft seizure

yes it is seized in there, it wont turn and it wont slide out, i did break the gear on the front , it just broke the dough so the gear spins but not the shaft ,so looks like its welded itself in there, i was thinking of getting some sort of slide hammer on the front of it.

Re: Auxilary Drive Shaft seizure

maybe you should just cut your loses with that motor and locate another one,Because to fix that motor properly it would be a full recondition job plus the extra work to fix the auxilary tunnel

Re: Auxilary Drive Shaft seizure

if i rebuild the bottom end, and use the 3.2 L motor con rods, is that setup safe to use with an ed xr6 head , does the piston actually poke out of the top of the block when its at TDC. I know this setup will give you more compression which means more power is there any other advantage for doin this upgrade
