How much tension should i feel when rotating the transmission main shaft on a 1978 Yamaha Chappy LB50PE? The video shows what I mean. When I tightened the case screws it seems that the shaft got really hard to turn. Not impossible by any means, but the crankshaft turns freely and the transmission shaft takes plenty of torque to turn. My first engine rebuild and just want to make sure I have everything right. Thanks in advance! John
