Default broken crankshaft!

Had the savage 25 out today for some romping around when it suddenly cut off. Crank was spinning free so I thought, great, I broke my con rod not when I pulled it apart I saw an intact rod but the rod pin on the crank had sheared off completely. The piston moves freely in the bore so I have no idea what happened. I'm trying to find a new crank for it and so far only found one on eBay for about $65. Seems a bit pricey... I was wondering if the crank from a 4.6 would fit because they are everywhere and cheeep to boot.

Im guessing you have an s-25 engine? No you cant use the shaft from the 4.6. That engine is piss poor anyways and you would be better off with a new one as the s-25 was full of little problems. I keep repeating myself but get an LRP, comes in .28 .30 and .32. Look em up on ebay. Easy to break in and tune, wont break the bank.
