OMG I was reading all this post, and than I noticed that it was from Kiudog.

My M5 has been parket at the garage for the last 2 weeks, waiting for the new tierods and control arms to arrive.

Considering of what happend to GrandRoyal and Kiudog in those 2 week, I think that something would happend to me as well, if i was on the road.

Bad energies are over Brazil right now. That makes me very, very sad.

surely it's engine parts your importing? they happen to be part assembled? I mine, you could always get it stripped down and shipped in chunks, but, that means re-build at the other end...

I am importing the hole engine. the problem is, the brazilian laws dont let yoy import used stuff, just if youre doing it taking the risks of loosing it (confiscation) if they see thet youre not doing the right thing. Ill try to minimize all my risks, importing and paying all taxes. and most important, the engine has to look new. Im paying the seller extra money for him to gt it stripped of all the stuff i dont need and clean the hell out of it before it can be shipped to brazil.

thats how we minimize the chances of getting confiscated and if you pay all taxes its easier for them to let it go, due to the size and weight...

That looks more like a rod bolt failure to me. No obvious blueing of bigend in that picture.

Congratulations.

But keep in mind that new rod-bearing shells are only available in yellow color-marking. So if the rods themselve have another color-dot on them, you have to measure the clearance between the bearing and the cranck journal.

A reliable method is plastigage. This is plastic that compresses between two parts. The compression results in a flat plastic residu. The final width of the compressed plastigage is compared to a reference liner that determines the actual clearance.
