    951 Mag Flywheel Reassembly Question

    Hey guys, almost done rebuilding my 951. My ski ran great before one of the crank rod bearings came apart and blew a hole in the case. So I did a full enbgine rebuild, new crank, the whole 9.

    I marked everything during disassembly, especially the mag flywheel. But during assembly, following the manual, I notice my mag wheel was not aligned according to the manual, but the ski fired right up and screamed before.

    Can someone confirm this is okay for reassembly? Or should I reset it to manual specs? I've never rebuilt one of these things, and it better work after all the hours I put in it..

    Here's a pic of the mag flywheel reinstalled. Note sharpie marks on the cup and wheel during disassembly, but you can see the longer protrusion is to the left of the flywheel hole, but by about 1.5 inches:



    Local ski shop also told me to reassemble it the same way it came off. Very good shop in the Tampa area, probably one of the only ones left around here that will work on a 951.

    Just want to make sure before I start piecing these last parts back together.

    There are 2 versions of the 951 ignition and one of them lines up like your pics. You marked it upon taking it apart, if it was good before, it's good now.

    Thank you for answering! I didn't know that. So I was sort of going to ask for forgiveness if I did it wrong, cause I already sealed the mag up hoping someone would confirm that, I had asked a few people waiting for a response.

    So here she is:

    Thanks! I honestly didn't expect it to turn out so nice. I'm happy, though it will always be covered lol.

    Guess I was one of the guys you were waiting on a reply from. The 98 model uses only one coil, 99 and newer uses two coils. If motor ran before you took it apart then right to reassemble that way. Have not heard back from you to find out if the motor survived or not. Hopefully you didnt overlook anything. A very expensive mistake if something didnt get back just right.
