OK, since I'm waiting for parts to arrive in the mail AND I have some sheetmetal kicking around AND I have those sled tin templates that Al and Glenn provided, today I'm gonna make some sled tins! Might as well - with the engine on a shop stand it doesn't get any easier to work on it than this.
Once it's off the stand, I can pull the flywheel and replace the mainseal, button it up and get it back in.
Question for you engine guys: If I pull the flywheel and it's part of a balanced spinning assembly ( crank and flywheel balanced as a unit ), what should I be looking for as any possible alignment marks to put it back together?
Thanks. gn Pictures of the Sled Tins at eleven.....
