    Remove the flywheel cover then grab the flywheel on each side and try to rock it side to side. I have seen three this season the top crank bearing had failed and the crank beat the top seal out.

    If this is the case a new engine is in order.....

    Crank bearing good no play in crank shaft.
    What I need to know now, is how to time the cam, their is a timming mark on the cam gear but not the crank gear??

    Hmmm, Did you take this engine apart just to check the crank bearing at the flywheel ?

    Look closer at the crank gear it will be nothing more than a punch mark;
