yeh dsm stands for diamond star motors. . . 2nd gen eclipse's have this shit called "crankwalk", 6 bolt swap is the way to go if u gots a 95-97 (earlier eclipse engine.. . still a 4g63), , 98 n 99 are unlikely to have it but it is possible. . (crankwalk has something to do with the rod bearings and the crankshaft. . . ), dont quote me though. . . all ^ is some things i remember that dsmer talking about. . =/

Basically correct other than it has to do with the thrust bearing on the block, not the rods.

Yeah my car just came down with C/W ... and my fuel/Air ratio is crap as well... And yeah 6 bolt is just one of the ways to get rid of C/W .. Or buy some good bearings .. But 50% of the rebuilt engines will get C/W again . Although you have a better chance of not getting it with after market bearings... if you think u have it one way of telling is if there is a knocking noise or you can take out your oil filter cut it open and see if there is any metal floating around .And if you take left hand turns ur clutch can stick to the floor.. C/W is less likley to happen if u have an auto ... If you all have any dsm questions feel free to ask me DSM is my specialty!!!!

I think "Wrong, very Wrong" is a little harsh, he was really pretty close to on the money.

But, yes, CW occurs due to a faulty thrust bearing design. It is most common on 2G 7-bolt 4G63's, and is drastically amplified with the installation of a performance clutch (increased load on thrust bearing).

A friend of mine (3yr GF brother), has a CJ7 with a 350 SBC. When he replaced the motor with a Goodwrench Reman block, he had two of them CW on him within about 1000 miles of new. So it's not a Mitsubishi only thing by any means.
