    I was looking at the attachment and do you have to drill the cages?

    I don't think the cages need to be drilled

    I took JZ's image and I aligned the screws of CCM's 3-petal fibre reeds on top of Mercury's 6-petal reeds and they seem to align pretty good

    on these special CCM 3-petal reeds, the 1-petal-large-reed covers 2-ports

    Spray some liquid penetrating Lube and loosen bolt enough to be flushed with threads on crankshaft to protect threads.

    Noli will you be pulling rods and pistons out yourself to do rebuild or you sending to a shop for rebuild

    JZ!

    thanks brother!

    the flywheel came off with slight issue. Yesterday I was wrestling with the thing, did not want to budge, so I kept soaking it with WD40

    This morning I simply lifted it off the crank!

    I actually used a $14 automobile harmonic balancer puller from Harbor Freight cause I was afraid to strip the threads on the flywheel

    Before pic, with the alternator, pump, flywheel still on

    Nothing a nice block of 2x4 and hammer couldn't fix with couple taps to the flywheel. Don't use harmonic balancer puller it's not enough meat on crankshaft center to put force on it could split crankshaft head.

    Oh man I'm gonna look at the crankshaft to be sure I didn't damage it

    But actually by the time I used that puller, the wd40 has already done it's magic overnight and the flywheel came off like butter
