HS 50 rebuild.

After a long search I found a front cover to replace the one that cracked out.
I did not touch the rotating assembly, so that is still all together, but I just wanted to be correct on this, I saw if I align the dots on the cam and the crank, that should bring the piston up to the top and both valves should be closed. I plan to make sure of this, but is that a correct statement?

Also, the new cover came with the governor assembly on it and it's in good condition. Is there something I need to do with this or can I just put the cover on and be done?

Thank you.

It's been a couple of years since I did my 5, but I believe you are 100% correct. There is no timing for the governor; so nothing to worry about there. The two dots are it! I guess the question is, why did yours "crack out?" Is there any reason to think the new one won't? Was it caused by removing the flywheel or something?

First, thank you for the information.

The motor was just rebuilt and I had it running for about two minutes and it locked up. After tearing the motor apart, the cam would not come out of the cover, so I tapped it out and I found there was a piece of debris wedged between the cam and the cover, which caused the cover to crack out.
The motor was rebuilt in a high school shop class and I'm suspecting that it wasn't cleaned out good enough but it will be this time.

Thanks
