View Full Version : 5s broke, thoughts on freshening my spare 5s?

So story is this, current 5s has a rod knock but it hasn't spun. The 5s in my parts car runs but seems "lightly chattery" until it's warmed up. Would it hurt to replace the rods and mains (bearings) after getting the crank polished plus oil pump replaced with a 98 + pump?

It just be a daily motor until I rebuild the knock motor which won't be a stock 5s.

However I've done this in the past with junkyard ka24de and 22r with good results.

If you do replace bearing just use a micrometer and plastagauge

You say light chatter. Are you sure it's from the bottom end?
