    K301 crank movement

    At the very top of the stroke ( and bottom) the arc is really narrow. So you don't have a lot of vertical movement, mostly horizontal as the crankshaft comes around. This and any freeplay in the bearings magnify the effect.

    Yes, it's normal and yes it is partly the "slop".. (slop being a technical term!) LOL

    Starter engagement issues

    Yes, when it actually drives the engine over! I think the bendix actually works partially. The internal clutch probably slips when warm/hot. IF as you say... it extends perfectly fine every time... ( Which I REALLY DOUBT) the history with these says otherwise. That's just my opinion...

    CATS Stray, Feral, Housebound, Declawed, and Otherwise

    We had a cat that would catch birds but would carry them into the house hidden in her mouth! Then she'd jump up onto the couch or a Lay z Boy and then start to have lunch. Mom would screech and all hell would break loose! Who ever let the cat in without checking would catch hell! LOL..

    Useful tips / vids / how-to's and whatnot

    True - the blades pitch sets the direction, unless they change rotation direction.
