Ford V6 183 CID/3.0L
I don't know how this happens but after hear a sound in my tranny near the converter i decide to check for a loosen bolt .When i move the flywheel/drive plate for check the bolts,one by one,suddenly the converter moves to the front of the engine like 4mm,too much for an engine,so i decide to remove the crankcase to see if is possible to see what happens(i lift the engine) and yes was possible to see inside the engine that one of the bearing cap the one that keeps the cranshaft secure in position damaged the crankshaft so i decide to remove the engine from my pickup.
Now is clear that the crankshaft was the only part damaged.and need a replacement.
My question is how is possible that this happens? What did you think...An unbalance converter or flywheel/driveplate or what?
Right now i'm disasembly the entire engine to approach the opportunity and take the engine to the machine shop.
Did anybody of you are having this problem?
p.s;If you hear a sound or noise coming from this area,a sound in the starter or converter with the flywheel/driveplate,probably you are getting this problem too. check the starter and the flywheel for indentation marks and try to pull or push the flywheel/driveplate with a screwdriver. good luck.
