Engine thrust bearing worn by towing
I have excessive axial end float in my crankshaft in my EF Falcon wagon. I have been known to do a lot of towing and heavy towing in my automatic 4 speed EF. If this explains why the thrust bearing is worn out then sounds logical. May be a problem with automatics and towing.
In a previous thread I was told the torque convertor gets hot and expands and this somehow pushes the crankshaft in the forward position. Can anyone elaborate on this assumption? Sound bloody good logic, but just cannot see how a hot convertor can move the crankshaft forward. I would welcome your comments.
