For the record my first one on original china bearings (jan 2013) has done well over 10 gallons and is running as strong as ever.

The gp 61 with DA crank sure sounds like a good buy in the USA if you can get it for $50 dollars more!, I would like to try one but as my two EME 60,s run strong and clean I personally dont have a need to try one.
I got a crank free of charge from Mike and I did not even buy the engine there. It has the IKO bearing in it and the press fit of the pin is a lot better than the one that tanked on me. I also purchased a crank with the old bearing and that is what is currently running in my 60. I got a rebuild on the shelf so odds have it I will probably yard dart it before it fails.
