    Predator Engine block cracked!!!! Suggestions

    Thanks you guys! I have another quick question. For simplicity sake, I will keep the stock dished piston to use in the new block. With the NEW BLOCK...should I get new rings? Or will they seat correctly in new block?

    Thanks Ole. There was positively no governer arm left in engine. I had it open and cleaned it out during oil changes several times. I am wondering if there was some sort of harmonic effect in a bad block?

    Since you are in there and spending the time and money on a billeted connecting rod, you should also replace the flywheel with a similar billeted model by Arc. That is the other weak link in these engines
