    Do I have to pull the shift drum before it will come apart?

    No, it comes apart with the drum in or out.... doesn't matter.

    Marty, are you doing this with the engine upside down? That's the easier way in my opinion.

    A big ol' chunk of wood makes a good upside down stand.

    It comes up about two inches, hangs up, then goes right back into place.

    Remove the shifter linkage. Maybe that's catching?

    Yes Jim! With Robin’s help, it lifted off. She held the shifter off while I lifted.

    $15 and it’s fixed. He used the method described by Leo. So, get the upside down lump out of my way and put the bike together is next.

    Notice on the left side of your pic, that little black disc on the sealing surface just above the crank. Don't lose that, it blocks off an oil flow passage and must be there.

    No, I don’t see it. ?? There’s a black dot there, but nothing that comes off. :umm:

    And if that's not it, maybe it's stuck in the other case half (red circle on the right).

    Yellow circle no. Red half went to machine shop and back.

    I’ll find it.

    SKF= Svenska Kugellager Fabriken. Translates to "Swedish Ball bearing Factory" Which was founded by the inventor of ball bearings. So yes, definitely a manufacturer of quality parts and tools. Equivalent of Timken, if not even better.

    I’m not in the finished place I want to be, but the engine is in and much of the stuff is back together. I still have some of tomorrow.
