    2001 virage 700 crank removal, how do I get case apart?

    I have an engine that got water in it, the crank is frozen up. It was sitting for a year before it was given to me. I have it torn down all bolts are out and I canít get the case apart. Where and how should I pry and or bang on it with a dead blow hammer? Iím trying not to damage it. My first attempts couldnít get it to budge.

    The silicone type sealer they use does hold pretty good.
    Looks like you have all the bolts removed from the bottom.

    There should be a place where the cases have a gap between two tabs, like 1/4 inch or so. A prybar or large chisel in there should seperate cases.
    Once 1 spot lets go, the rest will seperate pretty easy.

    Pat close attention to where and how clips are installed and also the seals.

    Thanks, I’ll see if I can get creative with a pry bar.

    Ok I got it apart used blocks of wood and a bigger hammer to get it open. Now to find a crank shaft. Looks like the best bet is the remanufactured one from SBT.

    It's more expensive, but you're better off having your crank rebuilt than using SBT. It depends where you are at, if you're out west Crankworks does a good job, in the Midwest, Midwest Crankshaft and Northern Crankshaft are supposed to be good too. I'm not sure what's good out East.

    SBT is very love/hate. They make a lot of parts that no one else makes, but sometimes their quality is not so great.
