    SWEET post! I will be doing the same on my 03 xlt this week... How do you know or check for high spots? Shouldn't the matting surfaces be smooth, not lightly sanded??????

    The mating surface is smooth, I do not sand the surface. I only address "high spots" that will hinder the surface from mating fully. any time metal is dinged, scratched, etc it raises material. I remove only the raised material that is why I used a honing or sharpening stone for this. A fine file will do the same thing to remove high spots, the trick is to not be aggressive, only remove high spots not base material.

    Make sure when you drop it in that the front bearing alignment hole is in the correct position and the center bearing pins are facing up.
    Align the remaining bearing alignment pins in their respective slots once you drop the crank in.

    Set the assembly aside for now.
    Do all of the bearings have little spaces that the pins turn into? You said that the center ones turn upwards? Please explain. Great Write up BTW.
    And how many alignment pins are there? Just two?
    Great Write up BTW.

    There are indents in the top case half mating surface for one pin on the pto bearing, three pins each on the rod bearings, then a single pin in the center of the mag end bearing to line up the oil journal. He said to make sure the pins are upward on the bearings so you can roll them into their slots. If they aren't above the case half theres no way to get the pins in the slots.

    as for the alignment pins, there are only two.

    I know OsideBill is no longer with us, but hopefully someone can answer my question...

    Instead of coating the front and rear oil seals with marine grease, I filled the grooves in the cases with the Three Bond. Did I screw up? I've already put the cases back together again...
