REPLACE ENGINE Continued
Clean transmission drive coupling (1) and engine flywheel spline (2). Apply antiseize compound.
Hit the front end of the crankshaft (1) two or three times with a large plastic mallet, driving the crankshaft towards
the rear or flywheel-housing end of engine (2). Striking the crankshaft will reduce the oil film on the thrust washers
and provide a more accurate reading.
Apply constant pressure on the crankshaft (1) towards the rear engine mount.
