One thing I noticed with the case back together is how much deeper my flywheel seal is now compared to before. I think my old one had walked out.

Here is pic of mine. It has 10k miles on it. Note the factory seams squeeze out similar to yours. Wonder if they used 574?

Mine seems deeper than yours as well. Hope I haven't overdone it.

Yes, the factory sealant is 574.

Is the idea, seal the case, allow squeeze out, don't touch a thing for how long? When do you spin the crank? Is it recommended to install RMS during assembly vs after case cures?

Loctite 574 takes a while to cure. How long depends on the thickness of the gap, the metal type and the ambient temperature. I'm in no hurry so I will leave it for a few days. I have however checked the crank moved (as much as I can with the rods in rubber bands). It seems ok.

Through bolt fastening method - P fix it with a John McM mod (screw in top of the sharpie). Each bolt took less than one minute - I was a machine

Btw sorry for the one pic per post but at least it ensures that the sequence order is correct.

Place the bolt in from the bottom, hold it with a socket and then place the sharpie cap over the bolt thread and thread the o ring over it.

O ring on as far as fingers can thread it.

Large diameter plastic pipe forces the o ring to the base of the sharpie cap.

Q tip / cotton bud with the cotton end removed is used to hold the o ring

Grasp the screw in the top of the sharpie cap while holding the o ring in place with the q tip.

Lift the sharpie cap away from the bolt end.
