As promised in the last post, the next post (this one) would be mostly featuring the crank in its rightful place, it is now, as you can see above.

That's that then, thanks for reading.......................................

It was never going to be that short was it (the post, not the crank) if you have learnt something so far from reading/looking at this blog, its that I do like a ramble. On that note, I meant to say ages ago (and possibly did but don't remember) this blog is purely a record (for me) of Izzy being rebuilt, its not meant in any way to be a "how to" or aid to anyone. There are many many better and more accurate blogs out there for that, That's why a lot of what is pictured and described doesn't show (or mention) the intricacies of doing certain things, it assumes you already know, or will look it up if interested.

So back to the crank, shall we have some more pics, shall we, shall we, ok, lets.......

First up is the are casing with nothing crank related in sight..........

Something is happening, there is a well greased new bearing present.......

Now there is something else there,the bearing has company, in the shape of of a new gasket

Then the flange (with new oil seal already in place) are fitted, I didn't counter punch the allen bolts, instead using a decent strength thread lock to keep them in place

Finally the crank, with the aid of a crank puller (from the other side) to get it where it needs to be :-)

Talking of the other side, that's what you can see below, not hugely exciting I grant you, but the whole point of this post was to highlight the crank being in.

Next up will be the mag housing being fitted, try to contain your excitement dear reader :-)
