  1. Firstly, thanks to all that took the trouble to reply regarding the RS.

    Story thus far; had generator off left of crank and centrifugal filter and
    crank drive gear off r/h/s. Can't feel any play at all in the mains
    (they're brand new, as is big-end).

    Everything that's supposed to be there is, and everything is tightened up

    Loads of compression, all gears there, clutch works etc. Tried to feel any
    play between generator and crank before removing, but can't feel anything.

    Haven't removed the top-end (yet) for simple reason of if I need to get
    someone to listen to it - to give a diagnosis - it obviously needs to be
    running. Still sounds like big-end...anyone here ever had a new big-end
    fitted and still had similar noise after??

    How did you fit the mains? Did you bang them in on their inner or outer
    No little spacers left over then.
    Compression pressure within specs as measured?
    What do you mean you haven't removed the top end? You did a full engine
    No, all mine sounded silky smooth.

    Did your small end bearing get changed too?
