I have had to do the same thing on almost every narrow frame creeper too! They did not exactly want to engage until I made the slot just a tad longer. I used a round debur bit on a die grinder.

After getting it back together enough to try and start it the other day i found out that the starter will spin the engine without the spark plug in but once there's compression there it turns over very slow. So i took apart the starter generator and ordered new brushes and bearings. Another problem was the creeper leaked all the oil out, which was my fault when i took it off i saw that i should have used a cotter pin on both sides of the engagement lever. I made the breather tube longer as well as the handle and ground the handle opening out a little more, so far no more leaks.

Nice work! Longer tube is a must if you need to add any oil...

I know you just redid your engine and getting the starter rebuilt is always good so its in working order.  But just in case it still does it once that is back together and on would be to check that the ACR on the cam is set properly.  Not to say you didn't do it right, I was just thinking of a problem I have on the K181 in my 73.

Ill keep that in mind, I didn't remove the cam or valves, just adjusted valves. The block was off a 125. Ill find out soon wether the new brushes fix it or not.

Ive gotten some more done and have the starter working good, the engine runs nice. Replaced the brushes/springs, new wiring harness/battery cables, cleaned everywhere the wires connect to and welded the shifter so it wont spin around anymore.

Got some more back together with the engine tonight, changed out the 5 bolts for studs, should have done it while putting the head on but the original head used all bolts.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1455415637.231746.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1455415647.146918.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1455415654.197834.jpg

Got some new front tires on and the sleeve hitch one, pulled the plow through for one row of my garden. The brinly adapter i got off ebay has a 3/4 inch hitch pin hole so i had to use a bushing to bring it to 5/8.
