    I tried searching and found nothing related, but I have an SS30 engine and I see them used on builds without any support for the far end of the drive shaft from the engine. Can anyone tell me if there are bearing problems associated with the overhung crank engine, and does the shaft stand up to loads without becoming fatigued and breaking?
