I replaced my chain housing o-ring with the engine in the car, and it's not particularly difficult. In seconds, the engine can be readied for a partial drop of just a few inches in the rear. This allows removal of the rear tin. Of course, the muffler also needs to be removed. Modification of the chain housing might be necessary if the cam is not centered in the chain housing hole. The chain housing can be removed without removing the cam, but the cylinder-shaped inserts between the chain housing and case must be located in a certain position for this. It'll certainly take an entire afternoon.

Again, the triangular gasket must be centered against the bolt holes, and not allowed to rest downward against the bolts. I ignored this advice, and this is how I got the opportunity to do it with the engine in the car. It would have been better if I had listened to John. I listen carefully to John now.
