Took a crash (pun intended) on windows 8. This is complicated. OK let's try the picture thing. This is the set-up for cutting the oil pump drive gear as an integral part of the front crankshaft.

Thank you. These are the five parts that make up the crank. I have to fabricate the crank cheeks now.

Prints called for the bearing sleeved to be pressed on and held with Loctite. That didn't sit right with me. This engine will turn 9500RPM at the high end. I went old school again. I cut the sleeves .004 undersize on the bore. I cut the shafts to print. Into the oven at 400 degrees went the sleeves. and into the freezer went the shafts. Two hours later they went together with a light tap. Once they cooled they are one. If you are looking to see where the sleeves are, look between the square end and the gears.

If there is one thing I have learned over the years I have been building and repairing small engines is that you have to be prepared to stop an make a special holding fixture at any time.

The center main bearing shaft needs to be square on both ends. It is only 1.5 inches long. I made this holder to hold if fast in the vise. Just cut and turn till both sides are .375X.375.
