Bottom End Vibration

Recommended Posts

Had a slight rumble on my bottom end and engine was at about 75% power,

 

so decided to strip the bottom end and see what might be causing it.

 

 

 

Has anyone got any Araldite I can borrow?

There's only 3 big end journals so perhaps it's a 3 cylinder Kent?
