Default reedy 121vr crankshaft

i recently had a crankshaft issue on my reedy 121vr. the silicone ramp swelled up causing an engine that wont run and also filled the crankcase with bits of silicone. i doubt if there is any warranty on the engine now so i am not worried about it too much however, i have a nib reedy that i want to break-in and dont want to have another crank pile up. they both have the same blue ramp in the crank.

Get in touch with Associated and tell them what happened, they'll take care of you even if it's out of warranty.

Most liekly associated will take care of it, but if for some reason they do not. we can re-fill the cranks for you.

Also be sure you are using after run oil thas "safe" for filled cranks. Using most after run oils will cause the filler to swell and come loose.
