Guys I think my warrior might be Bitting the big one. There's a noise in the engine in the lower end I suspect by using a screwdriver I cn pinpoint the noise.... Yep defiantly comming from bottom end. A lot of people say it can be piston slap or lower rod bearing it might be piston slap because when I checked my timing chain I rotated the engine by hand an it made a noise kind of a vibrating noise. When it's running the noise seems to go with the RPMs. I also suspect it to be the lower crank bearing. It makes like a knocking/clanking noise. How long will it last until the bearing seizes? I want it to last until the begining of summer when I go to tall pines. Also how hard is it to replace the bearing? If someone can PM me a link to instructions on how to take the whole thing apart to replace it. Thanks let me know what it is

I don't think the bearing will seize because it is worn and has too much clearance now. I also wouldn't run it anymore unless you want it to grenade and take out the rest of the motor too...IE cases, trans, clutch...

Yea you can hear it Alot when it's idling. Not so much when getting to higher RPMS

I wish I could add a video too show you what mine sounds like but what your explaining seems similar I only hear it at idle and it’s a constant kind of tap or knocking sound not super loud but noticeable, I have another motor in a parts warrior but I hate too swap it all out if it’s just me overthinking a little noise
