· "dont forget to fit a spiggot bearing into the end of the crank or youll knacker your imput shaft on the gearbox"
I'm fitting an SRI 130 engine into a 1.8 manta. I've been told not to forget about a "spiggot Bearing" ???
Will i need to worry about this cause I havent taken off the crankshaft atall? Is the spiggot bearing on the crankshaft side of the engine? or the input shaft side (front or back)?
Ran a search for it cause i didn't know what it looked like or what it does or where it is, could only find one pic:
CRANK SPIGGOT BEARING
Do i need to worry about this? I've done the timing but havent taken off the crankshaft atall?
forgive me if it's a stupid question
