Looks like you may be missing a spring washer

I think I'd start by getting a straight crankshaft.

And a correct service manual for that engine. Avoid Clymer's if you have a factory option..... I've seen service specs that they list that vary from factory. I've no opinion on Haynes books.

Good luck.

Start with a "factory" shop manual and then decide if you're up for the task.

Buy a shop manual, maybe several, and a parts manual for that particular model motor/motorcycle. While you are waiting for them to arrive sign up over at britbike.com and start reading posts about BSA motors. Start cleaning parts too. Have fun and don't panic. emti

BSA's are no problem. As stated, get a good manual and a parts book for that particular year engine. Do you just want to reassemble it or rebuild it correctly? Big difference!

I think you are all taking Josh's question too seriously

He knows his way around a BSA fairly well for a young'un

Why put it together, you'll just have to take it apart again!

When I rebuilt a Triumph Daytona somebody had dropped a couple of jap gears in the box with the originals. One of the damn things fitted. You wouldn't believe the stress it caused me.

Way back assembled a Honda 305 basket case for a friend. Learned a lot. Suffered much aggravation.
Odd how basket cases all have that same temptation/run away vibe.

Silly me involved in a 1981 resurrection, projected spring ride. Maybe.
