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?
Just measure the crank Ayjay, a decent digital vernier will do the job. Most crank bolts are normal threads,I have only come across one engine that had a left hand thread on the damper bolt.
