Suzuki Crank Splitter
 

Kickstart has kindly provided details of his crank splitter.....

HERE ARE THE THREE PAGES IF INFO I HAVE ON THE CRANKSHAFT RESEALING. 

 I CENTERED MY SHAFT IN A LATHE AND SCRIBED A LINE ACROSS THE CRANK JOURNALS.  THIS HELPED WITH REASSEMBLY. 

I THEN MAKE TWO SPACERS ,FROM METAL, THAT FIT SNUGLY BELOW THE CON-RODS.  THIS KEPT ME FROM SMASHING THE CON-RODS WHEN REASSEMBLING. 

THE INSTRUCTION SHEET SHOW HOW TO FABRICATE A CRANK SHAFT SPLITTER. 

I MADE TWO OF THEM THAT JUST WOULD NOT TAKE STRAIN AND BENT DOUBLE.  I AM SENDING PIXS OF THE THIRD ONE AND IT "WILL" WORK. 

THE SPLITTER HAS REMOVABLE END PIECES SO YOU CAN GET THE CRANK ASSEMBLY IN IT. 

YOU THEN BOLT IT BACK TOGETHER AND START SPREADING THE CRANK SHAFT FROM THE CENTER. 

SEAL REPLACEMENT IS EASY BUT BE CAREFUL HOW YOU INSTALL THE SEAL. 

THERE ARE NO SPLINES OR KEY WAYS FOR ALIGNMENT WHEN GOING BACK TOGETHER. 

USE YOUR SCRIBED LINE AS A REFERENCE.  PUT THE SPACERS BELOW THE CON-RODS AND PRESS TOGETHER. 

CHECK THE RUN-OUT AND TAP THE CRANK SHAFT TOO GET THE RUN-OUT TO A MIN.  MY INFO SAYS .025 " OR LESS RUN OUT.
