    Default Srx crank stop rings

    Is there a specific way the snap rings on the crank need to go? Do they all have to be aligned perfectly or is it not that big of a deal? I got the crank into the top case have and had the locating pins all set right but the stop rings were not aligned at all. Is that okay?

    This is a screen shot from the service manual.Hope this answers your question.Roughly insert the stopper so it sits around 80% to the upper/top half of the crank.
    I'll be right home honest.

    If I have to explain it you wont understand.

    I have the manual and seen that, I just didnt understand fully. I installed them as tho i was looking down the crank from the mag side with the crank already into the top case half and the locating pins in place. I hope that's gonna be okay. I understand now I was technically looking at it upside down! Should I split the case back open and put them in again?

    So my rings are 80% or so in the bottom case half instead of the top

    I wouldn't be the best one to say yes or no as to whether it will be fine that way or not.I've installed them half and half before or more one side than the other.I would think as long as they're locked in the cases with the locating rings you should be fine.

    That's what I was thinking. I mean the only purpose of em is to keep those bearings from walking side to side in the case i think? I mean if I cant find somebody to definitely say it's fine then ig I'm gonna split it again lol

    they need to be installed, they keep the crank aligned in the case side to side. if you have the crank bearing pins sitting in the holes, you can easily move the crank side to side some to align the grooves via a screw driver between the bearing and crank throw, just gently twist the ehandle and it will slide right over to align. i usually make sure they(rings) catch both cases with same amount.
    It's just a little 700!
