    Pro 785 Rods and Bearings

    Just got a call from Crank Works and they said the rods have pitting on them and the bearings look suspect. They recommended WSM for the rods and bearings...are they any good? Should I recommend SBT?

    FYI, they recommended the WSM kit 010-330, which is a crank rebuild kit good for 750, 780 and 785 engines. I find this slightly suspect as I didn't think they were interchangeable...

    they are not [interchangable]. 785 is all by itself.

    you can get sbt rods or use snowmobile rods but you have to cut down the big end of the rod to clear the cases. A lot of guys went this route with hot rods

    I thought that...so WSM has their website wrong by saying it is good for all the engines?

    Apparently Hot Rods has like 30 left in stock and will not make more once they run out. I'm going to just use the SBT rods and bearings since we know they fit without modification.

    Did you find the bearings on eBay?

    Jesus those things are expensive!! $30+ each for the pinned bearings and $50 for the clipped bearing! I might just go with the WSM and hope for the best.
