Well, thats good to know, and now onto bigger questions...
for the standard e50 the crank bearings on the clutch side has a groove cut into it. The bearing on this engine doesn't have the groove, but the case does still has the spot for the snap ring. Do I need to buy a new bearing, or does the clip on the crank serrve the same purpose?
The persln who owned this before me did put an aftermarket crank in, but I have no idea what brand or type.
