Got it together yesterday with the standard ball bearing. My method: I polished the crank shaft journal more thoroughly, knocking down a little booger (almost undetectable to the eye and finger) with some fine emery. I staged all my hardware. I lightly heated the timing side case and bearing until the bearing had obviously expanded. I spread the Three Bond as neatly and expeditiously as possible, moved quickly, and voila. Everything is together and turning exactly as it should.
Yes, that thread is very interesting.
I am lucky because this low-mileage motor had never been apart before I dug into it, so I got to see exactly what it looked like from the factory. I have been taking my time, taking copious pictures and notes, and sparing no expense on parts. Here and there I have found deviations from the parts book and workshop manual, but I trust the way it was together before I trust the diagram.
