    Yeah, i was fixin to say that youd have to be beatin on ur Hoss pretty hard indeed to twist the crank. Probably cant do it without all kinds of crazy mods.

    Ok, here is the one I had, maybe your cam bearing were changed under warranty. This is a pretty decent article.

    Yes that is true Pappy, although I never heard of crank twist from anyone I know. You can have the cam bearings changed and the primary chain tensioner is no big deal. You can change that in about an hour. You might want to look into a Hayden self adjusting tensioner. Once you put it in, that is it you are done, no adjustments to be made. All you have to do is change your primary fluid on regular scheduled maintence. As far as cam bearings, with only 600 mies, you should not have to worry about it. I will try to dig up what I have on that issue and post it.

    The more I read about this engine, the more concerned I become. There was the cam bearing bolt issue, but I also hear about primary chain tensioner problems, and crank twist. Anybody shed some light on this stuff?
