Make sure you have a flyywheel lock and torque to 235.
Remember to replace the o-ring in the flywheel on the crakshaft side.....its kinda tucked up in there.
Any specs you may need you can find @ chirco.....along with alot more info and fun stuff to buy.
Good Luck & have fun

I wouldnt run the motor like that. My suggestion if you want to try to use the motor without tearing it apart is to get an 8 dowell fixture and drill 4 more holes in the crank. make sure you flatten the little burrs where the dowells wallowed the holes out, do both the crank and the flywheel.

That would be the IDEAL fix for the existing problem.....but ive seen some pretty bad end results from people drilling OFFhand.
My last purchase had a crankshaft that came with it like that....that crank and flywheel were definitely mated and tossed in the recycling bin together.
But anyways it would be the ideal fix if done correctly...square to the chuck in a press.

It might be the thrust on the rear main bearing...thats what gives you the endplay on the crank.

Check some other resources on how to set endplay on the crankshaft....it might help you out alittle better.
