Hi is it a good idea to install a used crank shaft in a 395XP or should I buy a new one?
What is wrong with the one you have?
He broke the flywheel side threads + stub off, so now he can't mount his flywheel.
A good used replacement should be fine, make sure you inspect it carefully first. A crank from a 395, 394, 288, 281, or 181 should work in your 395 case.
Wow, I bet that made him sick to his stomach.
Could you weld a flat washer on the end of the crank to hold the flywheel on?
Of course you could. Question is would it work? If the taper/key way was still there, maybe.
Not so sure how excited I'd be to have something cranking 15K RPM, with the possibility of flying off, next to my family jewels.
Replace the crank.
