One Step Forward two steps back

The crank in the donor engine was so rusted that it was impossible to get it out of the cases without doing damage to the threads and splines. Not a major problem, I knew the donor was seized up so I wasn't counting on the crank to be useable - though it would've been nice. I took the timing side engine bushing and compared it to the new "5ta" crank I snagged on the 'bay, but oh no, whats this? It's no a match. I think the crank I bought, listed as a 5ta is actually a 5T pre unit model, which is totally different. Argh!!!!!!!!!!
The bushing should be flush with the Crank spindle.
A good cm or so longer.

  1. according to the part number it fits 61-65, though my 59 parts list has the number listed as the correct crank. Maybe there's a space and a different bush that i need?
