Thanks guys for the kind words. Man, I'm glad to be done with cleaning and painting that engine. Yesterday, I decided I was not happy with the paint job on the right side crank case cover. I decided to remove it as well since I had a new gasket for it in the kit. It was much easier to paint both sides with it removed.Got some new pics I'll add on Monday. Have a great weekend fellas. Oh, one last thing.... I added the kick starter back, pushing it by hand while sitting on my workbench is extremely hard to turn over. I can put a 14mm wrench on the stator and turn the engine over, but again, with difficulty. I thought with clean engine, inside and out, this would be easier. Have I screwed something up? Also, I have not put new oil in yet. Could that be why?
