Following on from this...I have a cast crank for a 350
project.
It arrived with the sludge trap ‘cleaned out’ and the
plug loose. It looks clean up there.
The big end feels perfect but I worry about what
detritus may have gone the wrong way.
Rather than disassembly, to be sure, is there any thoughts/problems about aiming a high pressure hose
up into the crank followed by copious amounts of oil?

Hi,
I think I'd do exactly what it is that you suggest. Maybe air followed by paraffin followed by copious amounts of oil.
