    If things came apart could be a busted crank bearing or two. If you can remove the back plate and take a visual, how much fuel have you run threw your motor?

    I would think that if you damaged your crank it had to damage the engine block and your bearing have got to be trashed, I would take a very close look at that motor before deciding on a crank.
