    Should the flywheel/crank shaft be able to move up and down? There's about a 1.5 cm play where my flywheel, on a Tecumseh walker model # LEV100-340037D, doesn't touch the top of the crankcase.

    All cranks must move up and down, That's crank end play.

    BTW, Yours should be .005" to .027" or .127 to .686 mm.
