This part was put in the wrong box during disassembly, can you help find its home?
Attached is a scanned picture with approximate dimensions and where I think it may belong on the output shaft...

I hope the picture comes through.

:doh:


Thanks!

In case you're wondering, I'll answer my own question, I just found the part.
Item 11 Page 45 P.N. 23171-MG9-000 PLATE

F.Y.I. This part must be in place before the two halves of the engine are assembled.

Now we all know, thanks for trying everyone.

So it looks like you're gonna have to split the case and re-check everything. I don't envy you that job.

Thanks for the sympathy!

Well, that was today's job... split the cases and put the part in where it belongs. It came out in the fall when I opened the engine up and I must have not seen it fall out. I can't believe I lost track of that part. But if I've prevented this from happening to someone else, it was worth posting.

The problem with the manuals is the use of drawings, not actual pictures, so it was a hard part to figure out.

Not a bad job actually, everything is clean, no oil had been put in yet, so it went well. This has been a fall / spring project so I'm in no rush. Tomorrow is another day.

Yes, I do enjoy this stuff and I have great patience for machinery...it doesn't talk back!

Here's a pic of the setup I use to split the cases. It doesn't take 3 people like the book says, I can do the entire job, start to finish by myself.

Just using threaded rod and some 3x3s, I can open or close the cases easily.

Hi Uncle A,

Very cool engine clamps.

Are you doing this on your kitchen table or in the bathtub? :D

That pic is in the 8x10 shed last fall, where I kept 2 Wings over the winter. The engine I took apart and brought into the basement. Paint and cleaners stink up the place when the windows are shut all winter, so I'm just getting it all outside again.

I just finished fixing my Chev Tracker ... there's some pictures for you! My wife rolled it in late spring. Crushed the roof to the steering wheel after rolling over twice at 50 MPH. on black ice. We replaced the entire roof, 2 doors, and repaired every dent. I may post the pics sometime ... it was a 5 week project. Now back to the Wing.
