I'm hoping to get my engine back together tomorrow and was kinda going over my whole procedure but wasn't sure if I would be ok to completely assemble the engine and then put it back into the frame due to any clearance issues. When disassembling I removed the engine from the frame after removing the cylinder. I was thinking it may be easier to put it all together on the bench but not sure if it will fit in easily fully assembled. Thanks for any input.

I put mine in without the shifter on but that's it. It might be a little tight but that's the way to do it. Of course you already have the rads, gastank etc. off.

Thanks for the quick reply, now all I need is for my crankshaft to show up tomorrow and I'll be set.
