You Folks Will Never let Me Live This One Down.
Hope my photo above speaks for itself. I don't know what the hell I was thinking !!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am sure glad you spotted the starter crank bolt Mike !!!!!! I'm not as concerned with loosing a point [ it's easy enough to reverse on the spot ] as I am concerned with steering other builders wrong, during this build. My whole intention was to help them out, not hinder them. I never squeezed a turd in my hand, but I definitely know what shit feels like now.
Check out how I edited the above photos and text. Hope you all approve of the editing. I didn't remove any of my original text. I just added to it.
What a blunder though !!! The starter crank bolt !!!!! Guess it shows that I am ALMOST human. HEH ?
Thanks a MILLION Mike and John !!!!!!
About the oiler pipe clip Mike........I'm pretty sure I have it positioned correctly. My camera angle and the transmission leaning way over, due to the bottom frame mounting studs, may have provided an optical illusion to you. The first photo below shows a better view of the clip as mounted. I leveled the transmission for this photo. The second photo below shows the bolt, lock washer, and nut, correctly installed this time. Thanks for pointing out the 061 lock washer as well Bro !! My military parts books don't show it, but my civilian ones do. Funny.......I had an 061 lock washer, in my trans parts for this build. It is on the starter crank pinch bolt now.
On the clutch release arm......I didn't have any real difficulty installing the pivot bolts into it. [ Yeah.....it is already assembled to the trans. I assemble and then post on it, as I go along with the build ] I think the early narrow type clutch release arm and early narrow type sprocket cover, for the early clutch release arm, is why though. No doubt it would be impossible, on the later wide clutch release arm and later wide sprocket cover, for the later wide clutch release arm, to put the clutch release arm pivot bolts in, with the starter crank already on.
