    I guess anything is possible.

    My money is on the disintegrated woodruff key. Also found shavings on magnetic drain plug. It was completely gone from flywheel and crank.

    About to seal it up!

    Tool time. My one torx bit I broke is the size needed to swap the sprag from old to new flywheel. Off we go.

    I'm still thinking loctite on the crank taper is a good idea to keep this thing solid. The new woodruff keys are a very snug fit needing hammer taps to seat and position.

    Ok ... not yet "advertised" ... not great... you know..., weak old host, maybe lots of mosquitoes, limited space, the water is cold, scary big trees, rural roads, no cell, no internet, no phone line, no TV but an outhouse (yeah really) ... yet still hot showers and charging ability. People keep coming back. Whatever... bring Monkeys!
    Hope to post soon. Mo

    As long as it's cured so it won't act as a lubricant, I guess it can't hurt as long as you can heat it up for removal.

    That's what they say, it isn't permanent. I'm afraid now after the last go round. I want steady positive lock. I added a thin film. Hondabond needs to set too.

    Going to finish assembly and probably wait until tomorrow to put it in the frame. Saturday to prime and fire.

    Mostly done. Cam sprocket install, tighten mounting bolts, exhaust and oil cooler lines.

    Went smooth. Only had to run to the auto parts store twice to replace a broken torx bit that was necessary to transfer the sprag clutch. Grabbed the wrong size on first attempt. :patch

    Was able to salvage the countershaft seal by respringing the inner sealing surface. We'll see if it holds. If not, the guy doing the wheel bearings will pop a new one in.

    I'm going to finish assembly tomorrow and maybe tomorrow night or Saturday morning is enough time for the loctite to set. Not taking chances there. Will check cure time.

    I like how "tomorrow" was technically achieved in less than two hours. lol
    As many times as you've been to this point, maybe it should be named the Millennium Monkey.



    Woodruff keys are a galactic problem.

    A classic! Due for a millionth viewing.

    After I'd gotten everything mostly together it is just the three hanger bolts to get the motor back in. Then the connectors are easy enough.

    I'd love to have a vehicle make that sound when throwing a DTC. At least I'd get a laugh before it blew up.

    Just gives even more respect to the detail and effort of those movies.

    She's done. I'll light it up later this evening maybe.

    Charles Moncky, a Baltimore mechanic, invented the monkey wrench around 1858. Moncky's wrench was named using a purposeful misspelling of his name.
    It’s appropriate that you are using one.

    Used it to torque my flywheel and piston circlips.

    Couldn't wait. Started a new flash, adjusted fuel base to idle at 12.8:1 AFR, rpm limit 12k, idle 1500 rpm, timing changed to 2 degrees idle and the immediate blocks around it 1 and everything else is 0 timing.

    Warmed it up and later I'll get a run in with auto tune.

    Still need to adjust the AFR table for big bore specs so auto tune knows what to shoot for.

    Edit: much smoother now.

    Just did the first auto tune run. This thing is so fun. Need to get the map dialed as it is pretty lean.

    Going to do warm ups to auto tune temps and work on the different throttle positions.

    The countershaft seal fix worked. No oil hosing the frame.
