I have a 2007 Rhino 660, last night I am pretty sure I spun a crankshaft bearing. The engine will still run but has what sounds like an awful rod knock.

I am trying to decide how to proceed. I called two local dealers and they quoted me about 1200-1500 in labor. I called a local private ATV repair guy and he said I would be better off looking for a used motor as parts are too hard to find. I am mechanically inclined, but I am in over my head on other projects ATM(Building a house etc.). What would you guys recommend? Should I try to find a shop with better prices, sell the rhino as-is and eat the loss, do the rebuild myself, or find an engine to swap into it?

Located in Northwest Montana BTW.

Thank you!

Lower end issues alway require time and money unfortunately. I say if you really enjoy the machine fix it ( hopefully yourself )no time park it, thinking resale after repair,sell it as is or maybe part it out..If you do tear it down send me a PM, I have a Yamaha crankshaft all fresh with wossner bronze bushing rod and a 102 9:1 forged wiseco piston I’m not gonna use.
