Well now that's interesting.  So...when I rebuilt the engine, the float between the main and the crank was too big.  To fill it, I ordered thrust washers, one regular and one .001 over.  That made the gap within tolerance, but did mean that the crank was pushed rearwards by that extra amount.  Would that do it?

>  Also, just a rumor, but I've heard it said that circlips that come loose sometimes indicate the rod is not true.  Might be worth checking as long as you have it apart.
