The crankshaft is one-piece, heat
treated, and steel forged with all main and connecting rod bearing
journals and oil seal surfaces induction-hardened.

Thrust washers, at the rear main bearing cap, control the
end thrust of the crankshaft.
All connecting rod and main bearings
receive lubrication, under pressure, through drilled passages in the
crankshaft and block. A press-fit timing gear is on the rear of the
crankshaft, and a press fit oil pump drive gear is on the front of
d. The Flywheel and Adapter Plate (Fig. 7). Attached to the rear
of the crankshaft is the flywheel.
Six bolts and a scuff plate,
between the flywheel and bolt heads to prevent the bolts from
damaging the flywheel, secure the flywheel to the
