Bought a Dolomite 1500 and gearbox before Christmas.
Just pulled it apart today and found the sump full of watery sludgy crud.Oil pump was full of clear water so suspect it entered via the dizzy whist stored outside. However no obvious damage all now cleaned up . Bores ,pistons and crank are shiny clean so looks OK.
Q. If there is no indication of size on crank shells can I presume they are standard?

Don't know if this will be much help but out of interest I Googled around a bit, a couple of sites suggested that the oversize ones were denoted by a pair of letters stamped in but not 100%. Found this thread that has links to a few specialist suppliers who might be able to shed some light. Do you have the factory dimensions?

Hi
I dont know if they are dims but numbers are 5105 and on the other end 149081.
Probably if I take it to the parts factors they will be able to look it up.
Cheers and Happy New year to everyone

Would they be on the big ends? Part numbers by the looks of it, possibly even originals :o

Thanks for that help ;)
I couldn't find them listed in dolomite files but it seems they have been replaced by RTC1754 and is the standard size OE.

Spent most of the day cleaning engine parts.Turned the block upside down to clean inside and the dizzy drive fell out :roll: I remember those hours aged 18 in the cold trying to find the correct cog position for the timing :cry: Anyway I need to remove the timing chain cover which means the bottom pulley/crank nut needs to come off .Its going to need some welly to shift it. Anyone know if it's LH or RH thread please?
