Thats a pisser that Matt....Guess you wont be returning to the previous builder then ????Not heard of any problems with the Tensioner myself...all mine have run the auto one with no problems at all...I've replaced the chain on the 450 but only as a precaution....Mister Farnahm is my Recommendation mate..hope you get it sorted...
Matt you could try Chris Applebee Engineering in Thundersley near Raylegh in Essex, for the bigend rebuild. He's been there for years & apparently Stan Stephens subs out work to him. I've used him for over 20 years & never a complaint. HTH.
David Lambeth Engineering nr Ashdown forest, if you want to try something different. Bore-tech any use to you.
Wasn't it Bore-tech who rebuilt the engine not long before Monkey-boy bought the WR.
Makes me wonder if it even needed the new crank it had in it, or if they wrecked the previous one with a bad prior rebuild.The camchain's goosed with very few miles on it, have either your 400 or 450 had much of an appetite for them?

Team Scream - Great job with the PDF manual, but I've no problems with building engines, this'll be my fourth.If I could accurately press my own crank at home, I would. Unfortunately, as you know, it's a specialist job that's gotta be farmed out to a pro.
It is ???shit, I'd better stop doing it for people.......
