Default Re: Help.. Broken Bottom engine casing.

You are welcome. good luck with the filing. Go slow and file true, you do not want to create a loose fitting or crooked keyway for the key to fit into. You may need to use a jeweler's file if you need to file the keyway in the gear. A regular file will most likely be too thick to fit. They are carried my most good hardware stores. Just ask them for help as they usually are tucked away in a weird location in the store. Some are in the hobby section, some are by the cash register, some are in the chainsaw section, you never know.
