update: well, the atv god's must be smiling down on me now ?, my luck has changed for the better !. my bud discovered he has a late model trx500FPE on his property, and it needs a engine rebuild as well ?..lol. just ordered two of these ---> Hot Rods Bottom End Crank / Crankshaft Bearing Gasket Rebuild Kit - CBK0184 | eBay , from ebay, we agreed that I would rebuild his, and for that, it would cover the cost of my crank kit !. how cool is that ?!. all I need now is my cam chain, and I am waiting on my cylinder work with piston kit. this motor is going to be done right outlaws !!. will keep everyone posted on progress.
Keep the pics coming Shade, I love following your builds.
lol, thanks. just waiting on parts now, not much to see for pics yet ?, other than the lower end of my motor together ?..lol. when i'm busy like I am ?, I don't have time to stop and clean my hands every time to reach for my camera ?..lol. and I don't wear gloves ( not naming names..lol ) to keep my hands clean ?, soo..yeah..i just keep on truck'n . but when I get a chance here and there, i'll take pics as I go .
currently tearing out a motor from a late model trx500FPE, my bud paid for my crank on my project, we ordered 2 crank kits, just got his motor out just now, while waiting on my parts, figured i'd pull his motor, and start tearing it down to rebuild it. now I just need to make room in my shop to work on it ?..lmfao.
That's one clean engine!! :happy:here is a few pics of my lower end on my '05 trx500fm, and my cleaned rocker box and head. I just know all you pic pervs were waiting on some pics of my work !..lol.

welllllllllllllllll chit !!!!!!!, the saga continues !!!. wayyyy back, when I thought the rear axle was giving me the jerking troubles ?, welp...nope..it turns out, it is indeed that stupid flaw design in first gear so it seems ?, spoke with jeep today, he confirmed my thoughts on this. I don't know how I am ever going to repay this man ?, but it's a dang good thing he's a member here !. he's got the gear set, and gasket that he told me he would gladly send them to me, and I could pay him back later on, just...WOW FOR THIS MAN !. I wish we had tons of guy's like this man on here !!!, can't say enough good things about him !. THANK'S JEEP !!. one way or another, I will take care of his great deed he has done for me here. now the hurt sets in, knowing dang well..I've got to tear my new atv all back apart..aghhhhhhh !!..lets just say, I AM NOT A HAPPY CAMPER RIGHT NOW !!!..LOL.
