I used permatex sleeve retainer used for bearings,sleeves,and woodruff keys.It is green just like bearing retainer but works to 400s degree instead of 300 and that is the difference with the exception it will seal a .007 gap and bearing retainer will seal up to .005...You need to use red loctite on the bolt threads tho..

Chris,do you mean....whats the easiest way,as far as taking the motor out or doing it in the hull,or all the above.

or just putting it on in general...It is not as hard to install as it is to remove...Lap the two edges like chip mentioned and make sure there is no lapping compound left on the two(clean) install woodruff key,put the bearing compound(green 64000) on the snout and key,line the key up with the flywheel and slide on with your hand and if you like barely tap with a rubber mallot in center where the bolt goes,install bolt with red loctite,hold coupler while torqueing the bolt on fly wheel to 55 ftlbs..I hope this answers your question...

If you are installing a degree keyway,standing in front of the ski,looking at the nose,the off set of the key goes clockwise.
