    Brain fart! Yes, you're right. I just laid the aluminum stub in there for the picture. It was actually laying in a tub that wasn't big enough, so that's why it looks the way it does.

    I was in a hurry to put the picture up before I put the box away for a while. I probably won't start on the project for 4-5 months at the earliest.

    I've got the rest of the parts (thanks to Smokey) and front brackets are floating around my shop somewhere.

    Thanks, Grumpy, guess I won't have to make bearing caps. I'll just use the top half of the case. Perhaps I'll cut it down to make it lighter.

    Initial thought was that it wasn't positioned properly, but you specifically mentioned that you made it longer than necessary. And it looks like it will only fit in two positions.

    Probably not worth the trouble of cutting the top half of the crankcase to reduce the weight. The weight reduction won't be significant, maybe 5 or 6 lbs. And somewhere down the road you'll wish you had the whole top half for some other measuring/testing purpose.

    Removing the crankshaft from the equation was the key to making this work.
