I'm disassembling a 65 140 engine for a new club member. He recently bought this CORSA convertible but it ran very poorly. Inspection showed a dropped valve seat on #5. That was only the beginning of the issues. The flywheel retaining ring was missing. The pilot bushing was so worn, I thought it wasn't there. Tons of blue and red silicone on every conceivable bolt. The real surprise came when I spilt the case. In addition to a toasted cam, I found that only one half of the case had the correct flanged bearing. The other half had a regular main bearing shell. I can't identify the bearing. No size markings, i.e. 'STD, .010, etc. Also can't identity the manufacturer. The bearing are stamped "DAZ".
Am I missing something here? Has anyone ever seen this before? ____________________________________________________________Do THIS before eating carbs (every time)
