I have most of the manuals you referenced, either in paper or in electrons. The initial reason for tearing into it was to replace a stinger shaft, shaft drive plate and main crank pulley so my loader can function. Since its still winter this is the season I need it most!
A few years back I reworked the top end of the engine, with new valves, planed head, and re-honed valve seats. It burns oil in addition to leaking some. I've been intending to rebuild the engine, someday. Looks like someday has arrived. Won't have to worry about swatting mosquitoes doing this job.
