I've been so dang busy lately, i finally got a couple of hours to work on the jacka$$... i mean Mule..😉
Got the rod bolts torqued, pulled off the oil pump/tang installed the cam and timed it it to the crank, put the cover on, and for those who dont know or remember the ordeal with the crankshaft and cover:
There is a shim between the crankcase cover and the crankgear, this helps control the end play, or side to side movement of the crank. anyway, the first time i installed the cover the crankshaft would not spin by hand (according to the manual its supposed too) so i measure all the clearances (according to the manual instructions) and came up with the correct size shim. so back to TODAY.
I installed the new shim (VERY easy) slid the cover on, put the new bolts in, torqued them and the moment of truth, the crankshaft spun by hand,which is what i was looking for!
So now all i need to do is install the head and set the valve clearance.
and for anyone else rebuilding any engine, i do not recommend using Permatex assembly lube, it is very slick and not tacky, it runs of the parts easily, so i bought some Lucas lube, and it's slick, but tacky enough it held onto the surfaces.
