560 SMR questions

560 had allot of crank issues with spreading and blowing the clutch side roller bearing.

All this can be cured with the lightening of the crank, welded pin, more end float etc.

Rod is shorter and cylinder shorter, not a happy combo.

Long rod engines live longer and make more power. rod is no longer avaiable and no aftermarket replacment, you can get a spacer plate for the clyinder and can then use the longer XC rod
