Redline buyers beware

Motor with 23 hours spun rod bearing without any warning. Took engine apart and found engine in perfect condition but the one rod. The tolerance for that rod bearing was not right from the factory.
Mike at Red Rock rails was a big help in getting the parts and the specs to fix the engine. Redline was not very interested in my problem or what went wrong with the engine.

Re: Redline buyers beware

Jeff,

Please let me know what you found for clearances on that rod journal along with what color code bearing you used in comparison to the original if you can identify it and save the parts. I am going to call Marcel at Weber because I think he needs to know and would want to know what made it through their QC at the Weber factory.

You know Weber does build a good engine. This is just a real bummer! Keep me posted on your progress and let me know it there is anything else I can help with.

Mike

My neighbor has contacted Trevor at Redline about 3+ weeks ago for his safety updates for his Revolt and has not received them. Trevor said the parts would be be in the mail the next day.

Hey Jeff,

I was talking to Scott and Kory both today and they said you and Dave got your engine fired up over the weekend. How does it run?

Re: Redline buyers beware

Mike the engine is running great at this time. I have a little metal in the oil filter so I have changed the oil 3-times and it look good now. I think the metal was coming from the oil cooler even after I cleaned it out. I should have got a new oil cooler. The good thing is that the filter will get any metal before it gets to the motor.

Re: Redline buyers beware

derwood,

For the 2007 models they updated a couple oil cooler hoses and they have an update for the ECM to fix the check engine light and a cold start issue. There is also a throttle stop that needs to be installed and the cap screws that hold your steering wheel to the quick disconnect need to be removed and put back in with loctite. Also check the torque on your rear axle nuts if they are loose look at the washers and if they look concaved replace them with some grade 8 washers and then install the nuts and torque the down and install a new cotter pin.

Mike
