I wondered what the knocking sound was..the CRANK!

I took apart a 1.3 a while back that ran, but had alot of knocking and vibrated terribly. I figured it spun a bearing or one of the other usual problems, but no it was a MAJOR problem.
The amazing thing is that she still ran!

I have seen engines that have still run with broken cranks. Not in 2 pieces though. That is unreal. The oil must have poured out of seals.

I drove mine about 3 miles with the crank busted in two pieces between cyls. 2 and 3. Banged and knocked like hell, but it got me home.
