Time for an update.   I almost have this thing together.  Engine should be in by next weekend. I still need to figure out what to do for an intake and I need to order stuff to build my exhaust.   I would have had the engine together by now had it not been for the idler sprocket bolt hole stripping out. Seems to be a common problem on these engines.  I was extremely careful with it too and it still stripped.  Oh well,  I ordered a time sert insert for it and should have it in early next week.

Cant have a clean new engine without a clean tranny.  New seals, gaskets, clutch fork, rubber boots, etc.

Stripped the idler sprocket bolt at only 10 ft lbs of torque. 5 days later and a $90 Time sert kit I was finally able to button the engine up.  The time sert is a very handy tool and its very easy to use. You basically drill out the old threads, drill oversize, cut seat, tap, and install the insert. I installed mine with some red loc-tite just for added insurance. The insert took the required 60 ft lbs easily and I think it could handle plenty more. Here are some pics.
