    Hi guys, its me again. :)

    I wanted to check with u guys tat if example my engine crankshaft n engine bearings had been damage b4 but will the problems arise even after i had change the re-con crankshaft n new bearings as well?

    I would start with another crankshaft that hasnt had any spun bearings. Then I would have it micropolished and balanced, about $100 by a repebutable machine shop. Make sure you go with oem honda bearings and that they are properly clearanced.

    So its not necessaries to change the whole engine and wad i need to do is to find a good condition crankshaft n oem bearings.

    The problem won't arise anymore unless wear n tear which i believe is a long time..
    Am i rite?

    You wouldnt have to replace the whole engine, however you would be taking it basically all of the way apart!! So if you are not knowledgeable about rebuilding engines and putting them back together right I wouldnt attempt it. If thats the case it would be much easier and a better idea for you to get another engine thats in good shape.

    You cant use that crank it that block without custom rods or pistons it has a longer stroke. Stick with the b18c crankshaft.
