Yet ANOTHER engine build with questions.
Ok, so last year my starter locked up... I thought I blew up the block so I tore it all down... Turns out I was getting water in the front cover and the bendix and starter rusted.
So now I am following the Fercho Engine build method and I am about to install my crank into the cases.
Here is my first (of many I'm sure) question. I never took off the flywheel. Should I take it off now, or just leave it on when I drop in the crank. Everything is looking good on the crank and flywheel..
Also, what should the flywheel bolt be torqued to? (I know that it was reccomended it be higher than OEM spec)
Thanks (and pics will follow)

you dont need to take the flywheel off to put the crank in the cases.
get a manual, its got all the torque specs in it.. ive heard over torque it too, but be careful dont strip the crank... use some loctite also

You need to use new crank seals or them may leak.
So you need to have the flywheel and coupler off to get to the seals.

the Crank Seals have only Approx 10-12 hours on them. They were put in when a friend sank my boat the the previous year. They are in GREAT shape... Do I still need to replace?
If so, what's the best way to get the ends off (flywheel and coupler)?

They might be good what if there not ?
Cheap easy fix you have the crank out anyway
I would say there good with only 10 hours but there a bitch to clean.
How are you going to get the 1211 of them so they seal right.
I have a few old seals siting here,same thing I pulled a motor with 4 or 5 hours on it saved the old seals and put in new.

The dealer put the block back together and there is NO 1211 on the seals... That and the piss poor shape my power valves were in make me wonder what else he missed.
Note to all those guys running PV still... Check and clean them... I had a build-up of carbon on the edge my PV's at least a sixteenth of in inch. Pics to follow.
I have to wait for the 1211 to get here, I might as well wait for new seals.

I have an Advent CDI with a external switch bank.. Does anybody think I should get a advance key for the flywheel?
