Are you guys actually just putting a top end on an engine after that kind of carnage?
I would worry about the bottom end every time I started it after seeing the mess that was in there.
I'm gonna end up doing a full rebuild, likely with an MCB Performance rebuilt crank. There's too much crap in the bottom end on the affected side for me to trust those bearings to last very long.
2016 800 etec XRS. PTO side piston melted down at 13,000 miles. Stator coil went out and from what the mechanic told me the ECM tries to compensate and dumps bunch of voltage in the wrong area and causes the injector to malfunction. Got a new stator new motor under warranty and everything's fine. No injector service at all! It did cause the ECM to malfunction only in that the temperature digital readout would not work otherwise it worked fine. Was glad to get a new ECM to! All this he told me it was due to the stator failure. You may be lucky and the fact that you need to replace the stator now anyway. I would consider while the stator is out injecting some isoflex Grease into one of the holes. This lubes the mag side bearing. Something I'm going to do this year on my crate motor. I believe the only reason I got 13,000 miles out of my last motor is every 2000 I greased the PTO bearing with isoflex.Good luck
What condition was your stator in? Mine doesn't really have any visible signs of damage. Not really discolored from heat, nor does any of the coating appear to be damaged or missing. I still plan on replacing it as I it's still a potential cause and it's not all that expensive in the big picture. I'll also still be sending the injectors out for cleaning and flow testing. If I'm going to rebuild this thing ground up, I may as well give it the best chances for survival.
