Might want to check your damper and Flex Plate.then rotating assembly (if all else fails)..just my 2 cents

Before you go away thinking you have a engine problem, I have had nothing but cracking problems for years out of the Moroso pans. Many others I have tig welded up as well. I started using the Hamburgers econo pan, it is thicker and stronger and works great.

Does the goldish anodizing create a metallurgy issue on Moroso's ?
