    Default parts interchangability

    just curious, does anyone know if the crank shaft from an early model r12 is interchangable with a 1.4?

    i have two unsuitable (machined or in need of it) 1.4 cranks and mabey the early model one will still be ok and standard. if it'll fit that is.

    I'm sure they've got different main bearing sizes.

    Stuey's right, but it depends on what you call an "early" 12. As the changeover was on the 12XL pre 1.4 12 motor.

    Main bearings are 46mm on the "early" 12 motor and 54.8mm on the "late" 12XL 1.3 and 1.4 motors. So the differences are fairly obvious. And they won't interchange.

    The 1.4 also has a much larger R16 rear main seal.
