Not a bad job rebuilding the top end, only thing the manual fails to tell you is the head bolts can't be reused. New bolts are required on a cylinder, or head removal. I found out the hard way by snapping off several bolts. When setting the timing, I usually pull the stator cover off, and use the nut to rotate the engine. Also the timing marks are on that side so it works pretty good. I had a local shop make up some studs for my engine, I now use 3 studs, and one factory bolt on the cylinder and head.
