Since you have a lot of experience with these my question is do the crankshafts usually have problems or would it be safe to use them? Do they fit tight on the bearings and withstand stress as these have been around long enough to have been tested for the most part?
I'll put it this way... I have never had one single issue with a crankshaft. I had one melt down on me because of bad fuel, but that is not a reflection of an issue with quality of the shaft itself, it was a known fuel problem.

All 6 of these i bought have this generic tag.
We run them all the time.
Been looking at the 268/272 clones
There's even have a 84cc 272 clone.
The emas 484.
The 365 and 61/268/272
Seem to have been produced the longest in china
They were the first one's i saw online
5 year's ago or so
Then the 660 kits came along.
afleetcommand on YouTube has built many of them
And has them in loggers hands to run.
Check out his video's. View attachment 758814
I have watched most of his videos, I actually refer people to his videos as well when they are searching for information on them... Very good information in all of his videos, and they are unbiased and real life field conditions when comparisons are made. His build videos are super informative as well.
