@Jan_P I read in the haynes that big end bearing play can result in a whirring noise.
From a video I watched it seems that the guy referred to the Conrod caged roller bearing as the "big-ends" when showing vertical play in the conrods
I was going to assume before the big-ends bearings were the right side outer most large journal ball bearing and the left side roller bearing
#s 12 and 15 on figure 1.5 in the haynes
@Jan_P thank you I believe you are right about it being #7
I also found a small corner of the case/block behind the kickstart assembly that had been broken off and some metal chunks matching it. Doesn't account for all the shaving but a bit of them
To me that means my kickstart and starter assembly are a bit suspect
