good day yesterday.

as I used a very slight coat of locktight round the outer edge of the RMS / block, not sure I want to tap farther in and break whatever sealing has taken place. hope that and the level of inset will be good.

what I think you'all are trying to explain is if not in far enough, the leak will be from the outer edge and not the seal against the crank? and I suspect the culprit would be that little notch to pry out the old one.

new pilot bearing went in easy enough. positioned, tapped slightly to seat, then used a piece of wood to hammer in. rather than that PVC, could also have considered using the old bearing. you wrench and you learn.

today, bell housing goes on and we'll see how much farther I get.

here is the new dose of pics.

and OT, stumbled on a set of 78-79 long fin 930 calipers for that project. could not pass them up.
