update: well outlaws, after giving this crank some very close inspection, it seems the rod is not gonna work. after speaking to retro, he recommended going to mr. crank shaft, I looked up his prices, and I just can't see spending that much cash on it. sooooo, I bit the bullet, and ordered a used crank from power sports nation, about $ 34.00 bucks, ad said good usable condition, what the heck, right ?. and before you ask !, yes, I just placed an order for brand new crank bearings from rocky mountain atv, another 100 bucks, but worth it !. as for the carb ?, I was able to hit my bud up who i've known for over 25 years ( great guy by the way ! ), he had a trx300 carb that he gave me !. I did order a brand new choke cable, starter valve part set from partzilla ( pricey little bugger !..lol ), so thats on its way. still waiting on my intake valve, exhaust valve, valve guides, and one-way clutch bearing from rocky mountain atv. was able to work a little on the front bumper, for the most part, I '' think '' ?, I can rescue it !, so far i've got it pretty much back in shape, still got some '' fixing '' to do to it ?, but i'm sure I can make it work :-).

here is the front bumper, as you can see, it had a hitch welded to it. I cut it off with my angle grinder with a cut-off wheel, its gone !. with some whacking with my dead blow hammer, and my shop press, I was able to get it straight ( for the most part anyway ), i've got an idea on how to fix it better, will update that later with some before and after pics :-). i've got to fix the front rack, as the PO cut the rail off it , no clue why they did this ?, but I will fix it !.

update: got a little done on the front bumper, everything is just in the ruff for right now. got the front rack's rail welded back on, I think its looking pretty good so far ?. not done yet on the front rack, I want to cut the very front down tubes off, and put some new , and longer tubes on there with some better metal clamps to attach it to the very bottom front bumper. little things like this make my day, I enjoy doing stuff like this :-).

ty retro !. yeah..anything I do now has to be an improvement !..lol. it was in pretty bad shape, but its coming back together :-). power sports nation had a few trx300 cranks, and out of all that I looked at, the one I bought was higher priced !..lol. most were like 24 bucks.
