Default 1 1/2 M Question

I finally got the gib key drilled out on my m. Question is when i put the flywheel back on how hard do i drive the key in? Do i need a air gap between the bearing and flywheel or just slide it in against the bearing. This is on the govoner side.Thanks Bob

I believe that you need to leave room on the crankshaft for the governor collar to move in and out in order for the governor to work properly. Also, if it is a model that has the brass wear ring make sure while you have the coller off that the pin that holds the collar from turning is still there, If not, this is a good time to replace it. be sure that you make it long enough so that the pin stays in the hole as the collar moves out on the shaft. Drive the pin with enough force for a good tight fit, otherwise when the engine is running the key will soon work loose. I hope this helps a little . Good luck in a good hobby, Joe Morris

Just slide it against the bearing as you can see in the view image. You need a 3/8" sq x 4" key part # 9605T. You have to hit the key ferm and got the feeling it's done. Hope it's of any help for you.
