small update...pulley and balancer removed...section of big bolt still in crankshaft. (guess I don't have to worry about looking for the bolt and its three washers...small consolation). Looks like its engine extraction time...what are your thoughts on cranks? Should I strictly go with a new one, or will a used crank in good condition be ok? Also, I am guessing that the turbo and non turbo cranks are not interchangeable...is this correct?
thanks for your time
