The first pic is the rotor, for the stator, not the balance damper.

The penny pic looks right, just need the penny where it will stop the gears for the direction you are turning. The bolt on the balance gear has the left hand threads. I used tweezers or hemostats to hold the penny in place until I got tension on it, kept pinching my fingers without them.

You have the correct marks. But also make sure to align the mark on the balance shaft with the mark on the weight. Some years have a dot stamped between splines on the shaft, and some have a stripe of paint on the shaft spline.

Now, ... pay attention to the balance gear and balance weight positioning when they go together. They will fit together two ways, but only one is correct. The largest post on the weight, belongs in the smallest hole on the gear. I put it together backward the first time and when I started the engine it shook so bad I couldn't see the handgrips and it bounced across the floor on the center stand like it was in gear.

So to recap, there are three places to align. Shaft and weight (dot or paint), weight and gear (big post to smallest hole), line mark on gear with rear line mark on the rotor (as in your second pic).

Don't skip using blue Loctite on the balancer bolt, I used it on the rotor bolt too.

thanks a million, that helps a lot. everything looks really clean inside. I'm assuming the black particles in the oil was from the stator because it was melted with plastic pieces flaking off of it. gonna do dampers anyway while I'm there.

You're welcome. That's the best plan, mine weren't bad either but it makes sense to replace them while you're right there. A few more bucks but only one more bolt, and the catastrophe avoided is huge.

Hope you got a TPE rewind for your stator.

I'm up here in Wood county, btw. There were a couple others on here from the state but they haven't posted much since joining.

haven't ordered the stator but that's who I'm ordering from. 80$ is a lot better than 120$ especially since it is better. is that parkersburg?

Remember the damper left hand thread bolt is also loctite sealed. I jammed an old sock in the gears, just seemed a bit kinder on the teeth. It was certainly an old sock afterwards.

One can never have too many alternative forms of transport.
