why did you unstick the thread about crank walk in the mkiv tech area?
if there was a clear answer i would have something in the faq area and theres not that the point of teh thread...we are looking to see what things have happen to cause crank walk .quick said:If that's the case then I think you should move those threads to the FAQ section.
I just don't think there's a clear explaination that is ready for posting to the FAQ. Ideally we'd have a thread that says something like "Given the crankwalk issues that occured (in thread1, 2, 3), members learned that the clutch bypass is the way to go to prevent this problem. Here's how you do it:..."
well we cant say no one has ..since there have been a few motors that have gone recently some dont know to what .quick said:The thing is that no one has experienced crank walk in a while... ? So... ?
If you want to re-sticky that's fine, but I don't think it should be a sticky. The cause was clear to me.
hum mine walked (no aem at the time)and so did 2 of my friends (both after the clutch bypass)quick said:Why after so many years? Simple -- the AEM, constant restarts, and the lack of use of the clutch bypass.
The AEM comes out and everyone starts walking the crank. Seems like a pretty obvious correlation to me.
at the time rps stage 3 i belive.quick said:In the case where the AEM is not the issue I have seen a strong correlation with pressure plates that were really strong.
What kind of clutch were/are you running?
