I have an ee20 legacy diesel with a broken crankshaft in

Resolved Question:

Hello
I have an ee20 legacy diesel with a broken crankshaft in Ireland. It hasn't been stripped down but im sure its the crankshaft. I have a quote of £850 for a full rebuild from specialists in UK however this does not include a replacement crank. I am finding it difficult to get a price for a crankshaft and i don't want to waste any money until i have a reasonable estimation of how much i will be paying.
Would you know how much a replacement crankshaft costs?
And what else would have to be replaced when replacing a crankshaft?
If you can recommend any company that might help it would be appreciated. I am willing to ship the engine to UK for the work as it seems to be the best value for money.
Alex.

Hello

a new crank from Subaru retails about £600 but going through a specialist will often mean you can get it cheaper than that

I'd suggest to contact this firm for a crank

http://m.roadnrace.co.uk/EE20-DIESEL-ENGINE.html

and contact this firm for a rebuild

I have to say £800 sounds very cheap. possibly too cheap
