Got it! Bridgetown Automotive cracked 'em for me, then torqued them back on- I changed out my studs on Spokane street. New 15" Mercedes wheels!

This is for a stock 2.1. I've got new rod bearings in, but still working on pistons and heads. I'll be changing out the pulley to a triple, and am wondering the order of operations here.

This pilot bearing was chewed up, I'll be checking the input shaft, oil slinger and input shaft seal. I'm wondering if anybody has a picture of the crank end, without flywheel or pilot bearing so I c ...
