I never thought this would happen.
The crank snapped at WOT; Bumping the rev limiter; in 4wd; 1st gear
I took the engine apart, everthing is very clean for 200 000km (125K miles) with 170 000 km supercharged. The block, heads, rods and pistons were NOT damaged. I suspect the crankshaft had a micro fracture. this is not normal...
I had this slight vibration in the engine at idle that I was never been able to fix. I since replaced the engine with a V6 from a Tundra with 20 000 miles.
While I had the chance, I replaced the flywheel with an Aluminium one from LC Eng and a clutch kit from ACT.
