All in all a good day! Managed to set the cylinder back on, torqued to 40 ft. lbs. didn't break anything! LOL I used Yamabond sealant to join the cases it is the 6D product that never hardens, Clean everything with carb cleaner, then hot soapy water then blow dry. Any machines surface is lightly oiled then wiped down. Reading the manual and they suggest a ring compressor or your fingers to feed the piston into the cylinder! Ain't never gonna happen with my old fingers! I use two studs to set the cylinder, both in the cylinder head bolt holes on the exhaust side. I made studs up out of 3/8 rod, then hand threaded them using a 10X1.25 die. The metric die on U.S. rod results in undersized threads but they are not under stress so they are fine for this purpose! This gives me a third hand!
