Can't you sell them a new engine Luis then rebuild that one later
Hello all, tech gurus!
Thanks for your worries, it was just a comment/discussion if possible, seems very loco, nuts, to rebuilt with used scrapped crankpins. The engine has only 400 hours use, was working as a clock when flipped at a surfing spot, guess why ? Ran out of cheap fuel with big monetary consequences. Have all spare parts except both crankpins and piston rings set. Will have to order from USA, found this nice place for Tohatsu brand and fellow brothers: www.onlineoutboards.com
Have purchased from them before, good prices and delivery to US destinations or worldwide by UPS if preffer.
Today will remove the remains of the broken rod needle bearing, if in good condition without excesive metal discoloration & fatigue can be used on the second hand spare market. Rudds, nice spare parts link sent, a bit complicated as they work with engine codes, the engine is a Mariner 30 Hp 2005, same 30 Toh parts for my peace of mind and everyone else involved in this dumb event. Fortunetely for them, have a same second sib configuration in use, so business still going on with just half profit.
