I was doing the oil pan gasket, and when looking into the pan after dropping it I noticed a very large amount of brass/copper colored shavings/flakes. After common sense and some forum reading, my bearings are toast. Though I donít hear any knock? The motor still runs but Iím worried it might not soon. I want to know if itís too late for a rebuild, and if I would have to get honing done. If my bearings are gone, what else might be toast? Iím guessing crank, which Iíve already factored into the price. Iím almost sure they went because the previous owners said they were only adding oil to the motor every 2 weeks, when really due to the leaks the motor needed it what seems to be every other day! TYIA!
