Default Caliber 30. 46-50 Engine conversion review.

The first problem.

because the crankchaft is longer on the 50, it extends up into the clutch shaft and prevents the fan screws from being installed.

the clutch shaft does come with 2 very short screws but they would only be gripping a very few turns into the clutch shaft. These have been known to come loose on the 30, so I grinded about 3 mm off the crankshaft and used longer (original) screws to hold the fan more securely.
