Maybe this will help. Now, according to hpi's faq this instruction guide is good for all engines pullstart or not.
This is what HPI shows for any engine
The problem i'm having (from the top left picture) is after i put the z699 washer on, the 86022 collet then the 86021 flywheel on is that the A805 screw for the trans (mine is a 2 speed) doesn't screw all the way up to the flywheel like shown in the upper right picture, the flywheel can move around on the shaft itself.
Now when I got the engine it had a nut, washer and i assume a spacer on the shaft... are any of these supposed to stay on the shaft? Picutre of Engine
you should be able to see the 3 parts i'm talking about in that picture.
thank you for all your help so far, hopefully this will be better information (as you can probably tell i'm not the most knowlegable when it comes to what part is what lol)
