After a lot of time, and with a huge amount of help from Pa's great directions, I'm satisfied to put my WLA tranny aside and start the partial engine reassembly...But I'm quickly learning just how valuable those transmission directions were.
First step - install the idler gear. Can't find anywhere in the manuals whether the longer flange faces in or out. Can somebody let me know, and is this consistent for all the timing gears, etc?
I think I'm going to be asking a lot of questions, so I'll apologize in advance.
