So what is on the crank end? Threads? Slot? Is the end boken off? Is there screw broken off in the hole? What crank was on the old engine? SG, threaded? Who sold you the engine and said it would work in your car?

Exactly what engine did you buy. Tower part number would help. Did the packageing or the web site say anything about it being a SG type shaft?

Default different engines

hello

there is a lot of different engine setup's out there . if there isnt a hole in the center of the crank for a screw then there should be a notch in the shaft for a e-clip towards the end .

hope that helps

here is a pic of some small engines , hopefully you can see the notch in the one on the left

thanks

Default your engine should look like this



if so there is usually a shaft that you screw on to secure the fly wheel , the shaft should have a notch at the end to secure a e-clip to the end so you can secure the clutch bell to it

let me know

now i m curious

thanks

I don't know if u figured it oug yet but when u take out the old engine you have to remove the screw that holds the flywheel in place once u take that off you will be able to use the same screw on the new engine to secure the flywheel as well as the clutch bell.
