2005 Forenza Crankshaft
First time poster but longtime reader, I picked up lots of tips on this forum when I was rebuilding the engine in my (now my brothers 2005 Forenza).
A quick history:
I bought the wagon with a broken timing belt and 16 bent valves in the head. I completely rebuilt the head, replaced the water pump, thermostat, and what seems like a bazillion other wear items.
The car ran great, I sold it to my brother so I could move on to another project and before he had 100 miles on it the engine snapped a connecting rod, beat up the crank, and punched a hole in the oil pan.
I'm trying to help him get it back together on the cheap but we're running into some problems.
First we sent the crank out to be ground and UPS smashed the box and lost the crankshaft...
So I need either a new crank or a good rebuild-able core and I'm not having much luck.
Here's the information I have on the block & crank:
Numbers on the block:
Numbers on crank:
608 86 809
I believe 80900508 is the part number for the crank. Can anyone suggest a source for a rebuilt or rebuild-able core to fit this engine? I have emails out to a few sellers on Ebay and have also been keeping an eye on salvage yards to no avail.
The VIN is KL5JJ86SZ35K120978 if that helps in anyway!
