Śo when you say do you really want to run set right at throw away do you mean that like cmon man you don’t want to do that or do you mean that’s really where you. Want to run it.Stator cover? I think you mean the alternator rotor. Pull it off and see if its been hitting anything on the under side.
As for that .020 on the rod, .021 is a throwaway. You really want to run a wheel set that is right on the discard point?
To check sprocket shaft run out, use a dial indicator. Measure off the outer surface of the splines.
ok I’m going to change. Your correct. I’ve spent so dang much it’s just hard to pull the trigger but at this point I don’t want to do again in 10k miles.I mean, do you really want to do that.
I would and have run some near end of life parts, but not when I'm spending $100 bills left and right on other stuff. Running a wheel set like that is for when you run 10 over rings in worn standard jugs with knurled pistons, and used fleabay cams with lapped valves in knurled guides. It works for a little while, and then it don't.
