Ok   serious progress today.  #2 bearing is pretty tight, so ill need to scrape that one in a little, but the whole process went swimmingly!...ill fit that tight bearing tonight and i can do a rotating assembly check.

Thanks for looking in boys....mounted up the crank, and there is some extra metal in the crankcase that needs to come out to let it all rotate....im going to countersink the screws as well.     Tomorrow......

Don't listen to him Dave. Just another retired guy with too much time on his hands  :ROFL:

It's good that you are getting time back in the shop after that nasty accident last year. Each day you will be able to do a little more than the day before.

Cheers :cheers: :cheers:
