524TD_CRANK-1LR.JPG

Just got my 524TD crank for my m20 stroker/turbo/supercharger/changes daily project. My excitement quickly dulled as I open the crate and see what looks like a pretty faq$%d up spot on the #1 rod connection! Haven't heard back from the fella who sold me this "in good condition" crank (and I don't expect to) so I guess my next stop is paypal to file a claim... Crap! Hard to believe someone can actually claim they "checked all the tolerances" and didn't see such a gouge... I guess my streak of dealing with honest people had to end at some point… Ugh!

a reasonable amount of time to try and make things right. If I don't hear from him in the next 24 hours, his name is as good as mud...

That crank looks like a piece of junk. Anyone who would sell it as useable deserves to be wearing the crank on his head.

FWIW: May want to check with auto machine shop in your area on cost/time to have journal(s?)welded up/reground. Gives you some idea of the $damages$ the seller has inflicted for paypal/other action...

agree with the others: crank is worthless. You are extremely nice guy to give this seller the additional time to make things right. I bet you have already invested time in researching/paying/waiting for the crank. You should receive your money back and an amount to cover shipping/gas/time ,whatever to receive and to return this known bad item. I asked about the ebay angle because of the ebay stores popping up now that receive an item and do all the rest. they would not know a crank from an antennae. No excuse, of course, just a possible explanation. Good luck with the correct crank, when you get one.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
