Re: Why did I buy this?

John, you bought it to chase the tube threads in the rear main cap. Or to enlarge from the 5/16" tube in the 28 thru mid 30 cap.

Re: throw out bearing

My guess is you have a sheared pin on either the fork that moves the throwout bearing or the leaver that is moved by the pedal. Grab both and see if one or the other moves on the shaft.

Re: Does this look right?

No it is not covered on the A but was change on the B to cover. You just need to be sure the slinger was installed with a sealer like permatex A2 or the like.

Re: "Modern Bendix Drive vs A Start Drive.

If you run the F 100 steering box, which I'm sure machine girl has, you do need to remove the water inlet from the block to have clearance.

Re: Transmission Woes

Re: engine knock

Sounds like the timing gear nut came loose. Take off the side inspection cover and check for movement of the gear on the cam.
