Sadly it wouldn't matter if you did.  The parts are not available.  😟 

Ran into the same situation on a Precision Blend 70 not too long ago.

Actually it still shows it available on boats.net for a grand total of $798. Not worth it to me lol.

I'm curious how it was determined that the center crank bearing had failed without tearing it down.  

I'm tempted to buy it just to see.

Did that price include a new crankshaft?

I did tear it down the cage came apart on the center main bearing. It showed it as a crankshaft assembly included the crank all 3 main bearings the rods and oil pump drive gear.

Well hell, that's not bad at all.   

The only thing I'd be concerned about is hitting "add to cart", then pay for it..... THEN you find out it's on backorder FROM JAPAN.   

That was the situation on the Precision Blend 70 I referred to.   We gave it 3 months (12 weeks) then I decided Screw It!     Cancelled the order, and it took 7 weeks for my money to reappear in my account.     

Never again!

There is a good chance that could happen It didn’t say unavailable but didn’t say in stock either. And you’re right the price isn’t that bad considering what you get. Just more than I want to spend on something I would hardly use.
