Duramax?

Postby TRIGGER » Sun Apr 05, 2020 9:13 pm

Anyone ever had a duramax rebuilt? The crank in one of my trucks broke, just trying to decide if I should have it rebuilt or buy a new or used one. It’s an 11 model.

That is going to hurt the wallet! I thought diesel engines were built really tough. I searched and found this.

I guess this type of failure is pretty common.
Did it mess up the block or main journal cap?

Machine shop (Mark) says the block is good. The mechanic quoted me $6,500.00 to get it back running. That’s pulling the engine, machine shop, rebuild and put back in.

That doesn't sound too bad with today's hourly mechanic rates.
