Hello, does anyone know how to split the crank shaft on a 93 sea doo with a 580 Rotax engine? I need to replace the rod bearings. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I am going out on a limb here and surmising why you haven't a response yet after a week and 34 reads, is because the subject is way too new and worse it is a personal watercraft, even though it is a SkiDoo.

Crankshaft repair is a very specialized procedure and should not be tackled by a novice if you expect good results.
You are best advised to find a a shop specializing in 2 cycle crank repair like http://www.cvtech-aab.com/contenu/index_ang.cfm

Good luck

Yes there are specialty tools and fixtures required....and a big press helps too.

I am not saying that a DIY guy can't do it, because some people are very handy, especially when faced with a challenge.

HOWEVER, it is likely best to enlist a shop that does this.

My shop does this , and I even have a 587 Sea-doo crank in stock ready to ship.
