    Keyway install

    This is going better than expected. I've got it tore down and the front cover off. Just wanted to make sure I was putting the keyway in the correct way.
    Looking at the engine from the front it spins counter-clockwise so you want the keyway offset to lean counter clockwise too. To the left when looking at it from the front of the ski. Correct?

    I'd hate to put this in backwards and end up -3 degrees

    I'm glad I asked. Thanks! I had it backwards.
    I looked at the prop from under the ski and it does turn clockwise.
    So I'm going to offset the key to the right - clockwise.

    Can someone take a picture of the Keyway in the crank slot so it can be posted for future reference?

    This would come in handy for others.
