Next step is pulling the flywheel to replace the rear crank main seal, and the oil pump seal.
Todd helped me fab up a flywheel stop, and puller adapter, and also helped when the old style phillips head oil pump cover screws refused to budge and we had to resort to heat and cutting. Good news is it all got done, bad news is it took all day, and i will have to order a few more parts! Click photos below to enlarge.

Why use a drill press when you can use a 60 year old milling machine?

Flywheel off, bad news is that those screws holding the oil pump cover on are going to be a bear
