Henrico close by? 2002 02 Kawasaki Vulcan VN750 VN 750 Engine Motor Parts Only | eBay

I would say the problem there is rusted rings/cylinders.

It's about 3 hours. Looked at that listing, but it's a bit of an unkown with the 'locked up' description. Could have spun a bearing just like mine and ultimately locked - no way to be sure without driving out and back, then tearing it apart.

Yeah, farther than I thought, You're almost closer to me.. I figured since hurricane Sandy was the cause, water damage. But yeah, it's a stretch. William may come through.

Here's one of the damaged bearings next to a serviceable used one:



It took quite a beating. Let's hope things go more smoothly after the engine goes back together.
